The tradition of the Grand Sousa Concert as the annual concert season opener for the Meridian Community Band began in the autumn of 1994. Conductor Carolyn Sherrill wanted to showcase the style and content of a turn-of-the-century concert presented by America's most famous bandleader, John Philip Sousa. Both the audience and musicians alike have met the use of soloists and authentic period pieces with enthusiasm.
