Favor and Treasure
Written for an icon in the band world, “Favor And Treasure” honors Col. John Bourgeois, Director Emeritus of the United States Marine Band, past president of the American Bandmasters Association, president of the John Philip Sousa Foundation, American vice president of the International Military Music Society, mentor and friend. “Favor And Treasure” is based on “John’s Theme,” a bold, original theme conveying inspirational imagery of excellence, artistry and duty congruous with Col. Bourgeois’ distinguished career at the helm of the band to which President Thomas Jefferson gave the title “The President’s Own.” To honor Bourgeois’ affinity for Cajun folk music, the old Cajun waltz, “J’ai Passe Devant Ta Porte” is also used, most prominently in the quasi-zydeco section of the work. Musicians and audience members of all ages will be assuredly affected by the spirit and essence of this extraordinary composition.
