Maryland Winds, a professional concert band based in Howard County, presents A Salute to John Philip Sousa, highlighting Sousa’s music and that of his contemporaries. Maryland Winds’ principal trombonist, Scott Shelsta, will be the featured soloist.
Sousa (1854–1932) became famous in the late 19th century for his military band and marching music, including Stars and Stripes Forever, Semper Fidelis and The Washington Post March. He also helped develop the sousaphone, a brass instrument in the tuba family.
Maryland Winds endeavors to bring world-class wind band music to the residents of Maryland. Its musicians and conductor, Timothy J. Holtan, perform at the highest levels while sharing their love of music with students, music educators, and enthusiastic audiences through clinics, masterclasses, and public performances on par with the world’s finest performing ensembles.
