Stars and Stripes Forever— Forever New. by The Elephant's Child


Guy Van Dueser plays the most famous Sousa march. We can have Sousa all year, can’t we? We don’t have to wait for the Fourth of July. This is much too wonderful to wait for next year.

Enjoy. This is special.  What no tubas?  Mr. Sousa never dreamed of this performance.
