chiefly of a leather-lunged cornetist
and a base drummer who could swat."
Dr. Revelli attributed the modern
band popularity to the fact that the
band can serve the community in1
many ways. During the depression,
Dr. Revelli declared, when the coun-
try needed spirited music to help the
nation keep its chin up-the band
came in for much use.
According to Dr. Revelli, the most
popular instruments were formerly
the cornets and the clarinets, but
their popularity in the last two years
has given way to the balance of the
other instruments because of the
manner in which all instruments are
featured today.
Not only is the band a drill team
today, Dr. Revelli said, but music by
Wagner which features the woods
and brasses, compositions of Deems
Taylor, Stravinsky, Grofe, De Rose,
Gershwin, Hadley, Victor Herbert
and Hansen have proven that a band
can exist as a medium for good music.
"The band has won the respect of
the people. Sousa's band was the
only traveling musical organization
of any kind able to make national
tours year after year at a profit.
This was because Sousa knew that
the band was versatile and could
not only convey the classical, but also
could add spice in the way of novel-
ties. This is a final reason for pop-
ularity," Dr. Revelli concluded.
