Sousapalooza

Since 2011, Make Music Chicago has pioneered the “Sousapalooza” – an invitation for hundreds of brass, wind, and percussion players to come together and sightread the music of The March King, John Philip Sousa.

This year, Sousapaloozas will be held in Cedar Rapids, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Huntsville, Iowa City, and St. Paul. Download the music, bring your horn, and join the band!
