Brighton Beach March

Brighton Beach March, composed in 1954, was William Latham’s first published work for band. It was an immediate success and was listed among the 100 most popular marches by The Instrumentalist four times between 1960 and 1976. The title (chosen by the publisher) refers to a famous resort on the southern coast of England. This march has numerous dynamic contrasts, as well as unusual scoring of the woodwind parts.
