When it comes to the historical knowledge and performance of marches, the United States Marine Band is your prime resource, especially for marches written by John Philip Sousa. From February 26-March 28, “The President’s Own” will host “Sousa’s March Mania,” a tournament pitting 32 marches against each other for the Marine Band online community to determine which one is the favorite. Every day through March 28, marches will compete head to head while our friends and fans vote which marches advance in the tournament. You can visit the Marine Band website to listen to the competing marches, download a tournament bracket, and vote for your favorites. The champion march will be announced on March 29. At the end of the competition, anyone with the winning march on their bracket, completed prior to the first match, will be dubbed an honorary "March King" for a day! Participants are invited to share completed brackets with the Marine Band by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org or posting to facebook.com/marineband.
