    March: 1919 is an imaginative recreation of the bizarre occasion in 1919 when a Royal Air Force band played on top of the R33 airship while in flight, as part of a government publicity campaign. The band was crammed onto the machine-gun platform on top of the hull as the giant machine cruised low over Sheffield, Bradford, Manchester and Liverpool in England, dropping leaflets advertising Victory Bonds.

    Program Notes
    Curly's Airships is a 'songstory,' a narrative work of words and music, about the R101 airship disaster of 1930. Most of the score could be described as being a variety of rock music, but the piece also contains some material for folk instruments and four marches for concert band.
