Conductor John Philip Sousa

Ink, 2020
Approximately  23 x 31 framed

John Philip Sousa, composer of many marches including The Stars and Stripes Forever and conductor of “The President’s own,” Marine Band used his compositions and conducting to create a unified musical hope, pride and persona of what the military, the nation and citizens could be, as one voice.  His conducting was like his rhythms, even the non-musical could feel a part of  the repetition of the American march that seemed to be able to go on forever, as if one with America’s potential.
