This month we offer a timely episode of "One More Time" focusing on females in the band world. The episode explores Sousa's "women in white" (told by Carol Berthold, volunteer at the Sousa Archive and Center for American Music), offers interviews with Dr. Courtney Snyder, Dr. Andrea Brown, Prof. Paula Crider, and Dr. Emily Threinen. The Source Material segment features Alex Shapiro and "Paper Cut" and the Two-Minute Rehearsal Technique is given by Lt. Kelly Cartwright of the USN Pacific Fleet Band, who is a Illinois graduate.
