|Subject:||"Pennsylvania March" as the Official March of Pennsylvania|
|In the near future I intend to introduce legislation providing for the “Pennsylvania March” to be named as the official March of Pennsylvania.
The “Pennsylvania March”, composed by Mr. Ronald DeGrandis of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, is the first march ever composed for the state of Pennsylvania. It was debuted by The Marine Band of Allentown under the direction of Tom Heinrick on September 16, 2018.
Mr. DeGrandis has been honored by former Governor Wolf, the City of Allentown and the United States Senate for his work in composing the “Pennsylvania March” and congratulating him on its debut.
As you know, Pennsylvania has a rich history of talented and remarkable musicians, and the composer Ron DeGrandis continues that proud tradition with his composition of the “Pennsylvania March.”
