Daughters of Texas

march (1929)

John Philip Sousa, composer

John Philip Sousa composed this piece after seventeen hundred Texas students signed a petition asking Sousa to compose a march for them. The students were from College of Industrial Arts, an all-girls school in Denton, Texas, known today as Texas Women’s University. The march is cast in the easy 6/8 swing that Sousa so often chose.
