Program Notes

The National Game


John Philip Sousa, composer

Composed at the request of Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, major league baseball’s first high commissioner, Sousa’s setting featured four baseball bat solos and is a great musical tribute to “America’s Pastime”.

Keith Brion

A true gem, The National Game captures all of the excitement of being at the ball park with the “boys of summer.”
