Marching Along with John Philip Sousa

An evening with the famous "March King"

The library will present a special performance by local actor Dwane Starlin as he embodies the life and spirit of the great American bandmaster and composer John Philip Sousa (1854-1932), known for his military and patriotic marches such as "The Washington Post," "Semper Fidelis," and "Stars and Stripes Forever" and who was born in Washington DC, on Wednesday, November 4, at 7 p.m.

Drawing from Sousa's body of personal papers, letters, recordings, and biographies, Mr. Starlin has crafted a unique 1-man show that tells the life story of Sousa as an American composer and conductor of the late Romantic era . . . and to celebrate Sousa's 161st birthday (November 6).
