The Boy Scouts of America

march (1916)

John Philip Sousa, composer

This march, written in 1916, is a lighthearted, upbeat depiction of scouting, even including a whistling section. Sousa said the march “absolutely breathes the boy; it visualizes the supple step of the boy marching, and not the heavy tread of the man.” The Boy Scouts of America celebrated their 100th year anniversary this past year.
