Belleville Homecoming March

Published at 1:52 a.m. on March 30, 2014

Listen to Christina Witkowski play Frank E. Macke's Belleville Homecoming March that he composed for the Belleville Centennial Assn. in 1914. This year is Belleville's 200th anniversary and the city has a variety of events scheduled to celebrate this milestone. Thanks to the descendants of Frank Macke for sharing photos and the music. Also, thanks to Christina Witkowski for taking the time to learn and perform the music, for more information about the recent SIUE keyboard performance graduate visit. Also thanks to Piano Distributors 455 Salem Place Fairview Heights, Il 62208 (618) 589-1900 for letting us use a Yamaha piano and record in the store.
