WWI Sousa Musical Tribute

Rich Chiemingo will portray American composer and patriot John Philip Sousa, who served as a Lieutenant Commander in the Naval Reserve during WWI. Sousa’s driving ambition was to write music that would make one proud to be an American and to perform it with the greatest band in the world. He succeeded on both counts.

 

Chiemingo, who has enjoyed a long professional music career as a trombone and tuba player, served with the United States Army bands for 8 years before spending 20 years as a member of the Radio City Music Hall Orchestra and the American Symphony. He also played in the bands of Guy Lombardo, Mel Torme and Frank Sinatra. He now spends his time giving lectures about musical subjects, including World War I music.
