A new tour about the life and influence of John Philip Sousa in Washington, D.C.
John Philip "The March King" Sousa's musical compositions and military marches have defined the soundtrack of American patriotic music for over a century.
A native Washingtonian, Sousa grew up in southeast D.C. and followed in his father's footsteps (albeit not by his own choice as you'll discover), by joining the U.S. Marine Corp Band which resides at the barracks near his childhood home. A long, storied career and world-wide fame would follow.
