12 Years On

January was our Sousa month - a new composer page with lots of the famous marches including the Liberty Bell which was used by the Monty Python team and as part of the sound track of one of the St Trinian's films. Sousa is particularly interesting because he was composing at the same time as Ragtime was emerging but of course in a very different position in USA society working as he did for several years for the White House. As of today the tweets programme moves up to a nine day cycle and there will be some hash tag changes. The retweets have tailed off but there is a steady flow of likes and a surprising growth of followers. The next composer for attention is Muzorsky now that I've found some out of copyright material to work with.
