Concert march

Back | Home | Up | Next

A concert march is a march specifically composed for a concert band or brass band (to be played at a formal concert or other audience event).

Concert marches are mostly similar to regular military marches or field marches except for these differences:

  • Usually contains more difficult rhythms which in other cases, such as marching, would be awkward to play.
  • More intricate harmonies
  • Although most concert marches follow the standard march form, some do not. William Latham's "Brighton Beach" for example, follows a IAABABATITCoda form.
  • Concert marches tend to have codas.
  • Concert marches may be played slower (100-120 b/m)
  • Concert marches tend to be longer.
  • Concert marches tend to have longer introductions.

As with every single type of march (from Military to Concert to Screamer and contest marches), they usually have an introduction, at least three melodies, and a trio.

The most-performed concert march composers are J.J Richards, William Latham, James Swearingen, C.L. Barnhouse, and youth band composer Ken Harris.
