I was looking for some music to post on Facebook for SamuraiFrog’s fortieth birthday (go say hello to him!), and I found this quite by accident. And what a happy accident it is! Here is the United States Marine Band performing selections from John Williams’s score to The Force Awakens. It’s a five-selection playlist, so make sure the whole thing plays. I’ve had trouble posting embedded playlists from time to time.
By the way, the United States Marine Band is an amazing ensemble. It selects its musicians after a rigorous audition process, and its musicians are the equal of musicians in any professional orchestra in the United States. This is not just some band that plays Hail to the Chief and a bunch of Sousa marches. In short, speak ill of the United States Marine Band, and you will quickly incur my wrath!
