One of the most familiar and popular marches ever written is Franz Schubert's Military March No. 1. Schubert (1797--1828) was one of the most prolific composers of all time, having written symphonies, chamber music, piano works, and over 600 songs, yet he only lived to the age of 32. The march was originally written for piano four-hands, however, this arrangement for young band sounds as if it was first written for military band. Woodwinds, brass, and percussion all shine with fun and interesting parts that work well together. This arrangement is perfect for an opener or closer to any concert.
