Armed Forces - The Pride of America (Flexible Band)
With theme songs from all five branches of the armed forces, stirring march themes from John Philip Sousa, and both the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem of the United States of America, Armed Forces - The Pride of America is sure to become a staple for patriotic programs. Arrangers Larry Clark and Greg Gilpin have taken great care in creating a uniquely flexible setting both in instrumentation and performance. Designed to be performed by band, orchestra, or chorus, separately or in any conceivable combination, ensembles need not be limited by size or instrumentation. Careful attention has also been paid to playability for ease of performance and rehearsal. An optional ending allows even further flexibility when performance time is a consideration and an optional narrator part can be used to invite rousing audience participation. This popular medley is sure to bring a stunning performance in almost any setting.
