March Forth on the Fourth

“March on. Do not tarry. To go forward is to move toward perfection.
March on, and fear not the thorns, or the sharp stones on life's path.

- Kahlil Gibran
(06 Jan 1883 - 10 Apr 1931)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today is the only day of the year which when spoken in English forms a sentence. And that, of course, is cause enough for celebration.

BONUS - Radetzky March - Johann Strauss Sr. "Radetzky March", the last piece at the New Year's Concert Vienna 1987, with Herbert Von Karajan conducting the Vienna Philharmonic AND THE AUDIENCE!


Radetzky March, Op. 228, is a march composed by Johann Strauss Sr. in 1848. It was dedicated to the Austrian Field Marshal Joseph Radetzky von Radetz, and became quite a popular march among soldiers. It has been remarked that its tone is more celebratory than martial-- Strauss was commissioned to write the piece for a celebration of Radetsky's victory at the Battle of Custoza.

For the Trio Strauss used an older folk melody called „Alter Tanz aus Wien“ or „Tinerl-Lied“ in 3/4 time signature (named after a then popular singer). When Radetzky came back to Vienna after winning the battle of Custoza (1848), his soldiers were singing the then popular song. Allegedly Strauss heard this singing and included the melody, this time in 2/4 time signature, into the Radetzky march. [1]

When it was first played in front of Austrian officers they spontaneously clapped and stamped their feet when they heard the chorus. This tradition is kept alive today when the march is played in classical music venues in Vienna, among members of the audience who are familiar with the tradition. It is almost always played as the last piece at the Neujahrskonzert, the Vienna New Year Concert...

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 03/04/18:

   Thank you, Joan!

 From Alice Menin Daniels ('62) of Northern VA - 03/03/18:

    Thank you, Alice!

From My Friend, April, of NC - 03/03/18:

     Thank you, April! My mama should have had one of these for me! Some adjustments would have been needed, of course. The first five would've been unnecessary, as I already did those things, and the bottom line would have had to have been changed to "THEN YOU CAN READ, WATCH TV, AND CROCHET", but some variations of the rest would have made the poor woman happier and me considerably more useful.

From Cathy Richardson Baab ('68) of VA - 03/03/18:

    Thanks, Cathy!

 From Alice Menin Daniels ('62) of Northern VA - 03/03/18:

    Thanks again, Alice!

   Ohh, thank you, Cheryl! That's adorable, and I've been craving brownies as usual, anyway! Tell ya what, I'll trade you those pretty strawberries for some peeps, and we'll both be happy! We should definitely make these when you come to visit!
