Tune of the Day: The High School Cadets March

by John Philip Sousa, transcribed for solo flute

America's most famous march composer John Philip Sousa composed this march at the solicitation of the marching cadet corps of the one and only Washington, D.C. high school in 1890 (later called Central High School), and dedicated it to the teachers and pupils. The school's drill team had asked Sousa that he made an effort to make this piece superior to his “National Fencibles” march, which he had written for a rival cadet corps. In Sousa's estimation, it was indeed a better march.

Thanks to Rawan for suggesting this piece!
