The highest note in Trombone 1 is C, in all four arrangements.
All arrangements are at a medium skill level. Complicated
arranging is not necessary or desired with Sousa. Just maintain the
march tempo, throw in an occasional counterline, give the supporting
parts good voice leading, and let the Sousa melodies shine.
The "Stars and Stripes" arrangement is not the Alessi arrangement
(alto trombone) that used to be on the site. This arrangement is a bit
lower, and the piccolo solo at the end is on tenor trombone.
