Notes & Reviews:
In October of 1915, Marine Corps Recruit training was officially moved to Parris Island, South Carolina. The first group of Marines sent to the facility also contained the first bandmaster for the United States Parris Island Marine Band, which formed soon after. Like "The President's Own", the Parris Island Marine Band maintains a constant state of musical readiness. On One Nation: A Celebration of the American Spirit, the ensemble presents a live performance, spanning the full range of wind band capabilities. The album features patriotic favorites such as God Bless America and America the Beautiful, classic Sousa marches, and an orchestral transcription of Franz von Suppé's Poet and Peasant Overture. Like all of America's military bands, this album offers nothing but the best in wind band performance available. Now, One Nation: A Celebration of the American Spirit will be available at a special reduced price! Don't miss this opportunity to experience this phenomenal live album, perfect for any occasion!
