Voicing/Instrument CONC MARCH
Publisher HAROLD GORE
(Grade 3)

Sousa originally wrote/published this work in 1929. The march is also known as Foshay Tower Washington Memorial March (see 389000), but it was first actually written for the ladies of the College of Industrial Arts (C.I.A.), which is now Texas Women's University, in Denton, TX.

The story goes that he had completed Daughters of Denton for C.I.A., but before presenting it to them, he had garnered another commitment. That commitment was to write and perform a march dedicating a monument built for Minnesota utilities magnate Wilbur B. Foshay, that was fashioned after the Washington monument. Time constraints prevented him from composing a completely new work, so the Denton march was used for the dedication, and consequently renamed. Later, Sousa composed and presented the Daughters of Texas march (14599800) to C.I.A., with them being none the wiser about the switch.
