About This Work

"Strike Up the Band" was written by George and Ira Gershwin in 1927 for a Broadway musical with the same title. Unfortunately, the pre-Broadway run closed in Philadelphia without making it to the fabled New York City theatre strip. However, in 1930 the story was revised by the Gershwin's and presented on Broadway with a new cast. The song ‘Strike Up the Band' was featured in both versions of the musical and since that time has become a standard in pop music repertoire.

This arrangement for Concert Band by Geoff Kingston captures all the excitement of Gershwin's rousing march and includes the seldom-heard verse. With its rousing finish this an ideal concert-opener and one that will be enjoyed by the audience and musicians alike.
