Katydid March is a short march composed in 2009 for my Mother Katie's 80th birthday. She is an active member in a "Prime Time 50" band. She first learned to read music and play the flute after she retired at age 65. So, the title reflects the idea that "Katie did" something inspiring. You might hear some strange insect sounds in the piece--the trombones have glissandi to represent Katydids rubbing their forewings (front wings) together to "sing" to each other.
