U.S. Marine Band: An All-Star Orchestra Special

The All-Star Orchestra's Gerard Schwarz conducts the U.S. Marine Band, America's oldest continually performing musical ensemble, in the three-part program U.S. MARINE BAND: AN ALL-STAR ORCHESTRA SPECIAL. The U.S. Marine Band was founded by an act of Congress in 1798, and dubbed "The President's Own" by President Thomas Jefferson. The program concludes with "The Stars and Stripes Forever," a patriotic American march widely considered to be the magnum opus of John Philip Sousa.
