President Garfield’s Inaugural March

composerSousa, John Philip
arrangerKlotzman, Dorothy
instrumentationNew edition
notesPresident Garfield's Inaugural March had been published only for piano; however, the title page indicates that it was indeed performed by the Marine Band, under Sousa's direction, on the occasion for which it was written. The present version was reconstructed from the very rare piano edition.

This work is part of The Bicentennial Musical Celebration published by JCPenney in 1975. More information and program notes are available from the original program booklets.

Are there any restrictions?
“No. There are no restrictions attached to this music. Use it when and where and how you wish, without cost or qualification of any kind (and that includes the JCPenney copyright that appears in all the appropriate places)— and in any way that meets your own requirements and the size and composition of your group.”

—JCPenney, About the Celebration, page 4.
