After a climatic introduction that includes a few measures of 3/8 time, the upper woodwinds and trumpets are featured with a tuneful melody throughout the song in F major. The main theme transitions into a 3/4 andante section in Bb that features a clarinet solo. This is followed by a brief recap of the beginning introduction and main theme before shifting into Ab major which builds to a rousing ending! A great concert opener for high school bands.
