Sousa, who was born in 1854, lived in the six-bed, 5 ½ bath home at 12 Hicks Lane in Sands Point from 1915 until his death in 1932. He joined the Marine Corps Band at age 13 and was later its conductor for 12 years under five . presidents, Rutherford B. Hayes through to Benjamin Harrison. Sousa eventually quit the Corps to start his own civilian band and focus on composing, and throughout his life gained worldwide recognition as The March King. The home's exterior is protected by its landmark status. Steven Bababekov of TourFactory.
Finally, Sousa himself used words like 'stirring' for his marches, so I doubt they could have been played at a stately rate. Excellent Job, Sousa!) Well, since this song is so great (to me), I rate it a 5-star! XD.
