Product Description

Escadrille Composed by Leonard A Orcino. For Concert Band. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 36700, UPC: 038081417585)

In 1916, prior to the USA entering World War I, Americans joined the French Air Corps. They were originally called the Escadrille Americaine---the name was changed to Escadrille de Lafayette after protest from the Germans that America was not in the war. The Escadrille had a reputation for daring acts, recklessness, and a party atmosphere. The corps mascots were two lion cubs, Whiskey and Soda.
