Abstract:
John Philip Sousa conducted his professional band from September 26, 1892, until his death in 1932. During that time the Sousa Band became one of the premier musical organizations in the world, recognized for its consistently high level of musicianship and for its stunning instrumental and vocal soloists. Ten saxophonists performed solos with the Sousa Band: Edward Lefebre (1893-94), Jean Moeremans (1894-1900, 1902-1905), Ralph Lick (1917), H. Benne Henton (1919-20), Jascha Gurewich (1920-21), Anthony D'Ortenzio (1921), Frederick Bayers (1923), Richard Gooding (1924), Harold Stephens (1925-26), and Edward Heney (1924-1930). These men were some of the most influential concert saxophonists performing during the years after the death of Adolphe Sax in 1894 until the development of the solo careers of Cecil Leeson, Marcel Mule, Sigurd Rascher and Larry Teal in the 1930's. 518 solo appearances by Sousa's saxophone soloists and over 60 different compositions have been documented through concert programs, concert reviews, and previews.
