About a dozen students from Senzoku Gakuen College of Music in Japan, where I teach, traveled to Korea to Hanyang University College of Music for a joint concert. This march was a gift to the College of Music for its 50th anniversary.
Unique Korean ternary rhythms are used in parts of this march. The euphonium melody in the trio from rehearsal letter E is the actual school song. Its premiere was on September 12th, 2010 at Seoul Arts Center under the baton of the composer.
