COMPOSER : George M. Cohan
ARRANGER : David Beal
A great setting of this famous piece. Written by George M. Cohan in 1917 about the American Army going “Over There” to win the First World War.
With this year, 2018, being 100 years since the end of WWI then this is very apt for your next concert
You may well know the tune as the music used for the popular advert for “Go Compare” insurance services
You can hear the band in the distance marching to the snare and bass drums…. A couple of bugle calls go out as the band gets nearer…. Listen! You can hear them whistling as they come towards you.
As they march into the village they play this arousing tune and gradually they march out of the village at the other side.
A very effective piece for your concert.
