The Sousa Conference Room at JWPepper just got a new addition.
Here's the painting I did of the "March King" that celebrates his great contributions to music. Sousa performed over 15,000 concerts, had 3 hit Broadway Musicals going at the same time and composed over 130 marches. He was also one of the earliest proponents of copyright protections for artists. Sousa has a remarkable connection to JWPepper. He commissioned James Pepper to build a bass horn that they could use with his marching band. Pepper, the Philadelphia based instrument maker, created the very first over the shoulder bass horn that he call the "Sousaphone".
