I Hate Traditional Marches

Picture from here

Traditional marches, I’m not a fan.  Ironically when I was in marching band we didn’t play many traditional Sousa Era marches, and those that we did play I loathed.   When I joined community band however we have played a ton of traditional marches.   I wouldn’t complain to much but most of the music was written before my grandparents were born, I can understand playing some of the traditional Sousa marches that everyone recognizes, but hte more esoteric ones that don’t get played as much?  Well there really is a reason they don’t get played as much.
