Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session

To: All Senate members
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 Heinick on September 16, 2018.

Mr. DeGrandis has been honored by 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.”

Please join me in designating the “Pennsylvania March” as the official March of Pennsylvania.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Christine Zubeck in my office at 717-787-6123 or czubeck@pasen.gov. Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB994
