Performance Notes

One of Sousa’s best known marches, Semper Fidelis, was written for the United States Marine Corps and is its official
march. This arrangement contains all characteristics of the original but is in a more accessible key.

Proper articulation and dynamics are vital for a stirring performance. Work to maintain good balance between
the melody and countermelodies. At m. 43 the percussion plays fortissimo with a brisk rhythm. The dynamics at m.
51 is mf and builds gradually to ff at m. 84.

Performance Time: 3:00
