Program Notes

March of the Steel Men

Charles Belsterling, composer

March of the Steel Men was composed by Charles Belsterling, vice president of U.S. Steel Corporation from 1932 to 1942. For more than fifty years, band members have performed this march and wondered about its composer. Belsterling was a successful lawyer, a steel industry executive, and a lover of bands and band music. Although he composed only one march for band, the musicality of this work indicates a strong possibility of inherited musical ability.
