Did You Know?

Born in Hartford, Conn., Dudley Buck was one of the first American composers recognized for his religious music, primarily for organ.

Robert Lowden was a prolific composer, arranger and renowned clarinetist. His Armed Forces Salute, which features a nod to each branch of the armed forces, is probably one of the most widely used salutes to our military personnel.
