  • Here is a selection of likely pieces to have been included at a concert given during the early 1900s by the band of John Philip Sousa, easily the most famous musical group of its day. Typically these concerts included arrangements of popular operatic and symphonic airs, original marches penned by Sousa himself, dazzling instrumental soloists, and light, entertaining popular melodies of the day.
