||"The Captain With His Whiskers" was arranged for Concert Band by Richard Baller in 2008. This is an easy march for young concert band. It is a tune that was originally written in the 1820ís by Sidney Nelson, but became popular during the Civil War. Each section is featured. The tune begins with the percussion section stating the melody and a marching machine simulating troops marching. As a possible substitute for a marching marching the band can lightly tap their feet. Nice melody and easy ranges for all.
