Memorial Day 2015

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hope all have great day...and get your flags out!  We all have Vets in our families that deserved to be remembered.


I went to see "The President's Own" United States Marine Band play last night at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts.  Beautiful night, capacity crowd.  They blow off fireworks after the free show.  One of the biggest ovations of the night came when they unfurled the American Flag during the playing of Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever.  

The Marines do this every year, Video of Stars and Stripe Forever from 2013 at Wolf Trap: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHQeqVfVaSE

The Stars and Stripes Forever @ quarter = 144 is too damned fast!


A guy I went to college with is in that band and I bet he feels the same way.



A long time since I played this one.  It is half = 144, cut time.  Oops, but still too fast.  It should be around 120.
