This website, sponsored by the Dallas Wind Symphony, features all of the works of John Philip Sousa – most famous for his 136 marches, particularly, “Stars and Stripes Forever,” the official march of the United States of America. If you’re not certain you know the music, a friendly ClickScholar writes in to remind us that, “It’s that famous song. You know, ‘Be kind to your web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody’s mo-o-other…'”

Sousa was a man of many talents. Use the navigation bar to learn about the man and music, listen to his marches and operettas, read descendent-approved biographical information and primary source accounts of Sousa’s life and work, and much more.

Under “Works” in the menu, look for the “Complete Works of Sousa” and click on it to see a comprehensive listing of Sousa’s work along with sound clips from many of his original recordings with his actual band.

As a Clickscholar commented, “The music alone is really worth the visit.”
