Fantasy on "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" by Robert Starer
For Piccolo (or Flute) and Piano

"My Fantasy on 'When Johhny Comes Marching Home' was commissioned by the U.S. Military Academy for the Bicentennial Celebration of West Point and premiered by the West Point Band on October 30, 1998 with Lt. Col. David Deitrick conducting and William Treat as the piccolo soloist. The text of the original song was written in 1853 by the bandmaster of the Union Army. The origin of the well-loved melody is less certain; it apparently resembles an Irish folksong."
