Experience a side of Sousa most people aren't aware of with this very entertaining ragtime-style piece subtitled Dance Hilarious. Ever the consummate showman, Sousa wrote several works in this style which was very popular with audiences at that time. Composed in 1912 for a European concert tour, it is every bit as fresh and entertaining with audiences today as it was then.

This award-winning work was inspired by a poem written by an American Civil War soldier in 1864 after being captured and sent to the notorious Andersonville Prison. The expressive music captures the indomitable spirit of the soldier's words and the underlying sense of optimism in the face of unrelenting adversity. The heartfelt music will leave listeners with a strong sense of optimism for the future despite the many tensions and obstacles we experience in our everyday lives.

The Ritual of the Wolf was an important winter ceremony of the native people of the Pacific Northwest, inspired by their belief in the wolf as a supernatural creature.  In this evocative work, the sound of tribal drums recreates the atmosphere of the solemn ceremony. Dynamic wind parts and hand-clapping impart a supernatural feeling as the work builds to a powerful conclusion.

In 1881, after being named conductor of the United States Marine Band, Sousa composed six new marches to add to the bands repertoire. One of them, Wolverine March, was "respectfully dedicated to His Excellency Hon. David H. Jerome, Governor of Michigan, and Staff." Lively, bright, and stylish, its tuneful quality makes it a natural march addition to concert band programs. As an additional note, Sousa wrote another march in 1926 which he called The Pride of the Wolverines; and while the titles are similar, they are distinctly separate marches and should not be confused with each other.

The Wooden Clock was composed for students in the early stages of musical development and employs basic rhythms and techniques in a creative and fun manner. Keeping time as a musician is essential, and this clever work reminds young musicians of that important responsibility in music making. Wood blocks are also used to mimic the ticking of a clock, and the entire band gets involved as they whisper "tick, tock, tick, tock" in several places.

Several teaching opportunities are presented in this concert opener and the unison rhythms make it an excellent piece for inexperienced bands. Each wind player must play eighth notes; however, the eighth notes are always on consecutive pitches, thus making the piece accessible to beginners. It also contains a first and second ending, accents, and several dynamic changes as well as harmonies that are very basic and easily obtainable for young musicians.
