The Sousa Band completed five over-seas tours of France, Germany, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Belgium, Russia, Poland, Austria, Bohemia, Denmark, the Netherlands, South Africa, Tasmania, Australia, and New Zealand between 1900 and 1911. While the band toured extensively around the world, the majority of their international concerts were performed in Great Britain and its colonies. This small exhibition explores John Philip Sousa’s more interesting Anglo-American connections as a composer and band leader, and highlights some events that marked the beginning of a long and complex debate on the issues of international copyright and fair use on which Sousa was often asked to comment for the remainder of his music career.
