The John Philip Sousa Home Page has been the best resource on the web for Sousa information for 15 years now, but it's been due for an overhaul. Quite a bit has been added and things have been reorganized accordingly. And I'm far from finished! Here are some of the new features of the new site:
- A new database of Sousa's compositions, including a separate page for each of his 136 marches, operettas, songs, etc. Each page features audio, video, images of the sheet music, program notes and more!
- The new database index includes a full listing of works as before, plus an alphabetic search (click a letter to see all works starting with that letter) and a index for each category which includes images.
- Registered users can rate compositions. Vote for your favorites!
- A new blog-based article system. The old articles have been moved there, and I'll be adding more. Would love to publish your Sousa articles here as well!
- Leave comments on any composition page, article or blog entry, and share the links on social sites like Facebook and Twitter. Look forward to your feedback, and appreciate you helping spread the word!
- Enhanced instant search feature - find what you're looking for FAST!
- A new photo gallery with images collected from far and wide
There is still much work to do and I am polishing the rough spots as fast as I can. Hope you enjoy... I've learned so much from all of you over the years and I hope these features will keep us better in touch going forward!
