An arrangement of the US Virgin Islands March for Brass Quintet & Percussion. The "Virgin Islands March" is a patriotic song which is considered to be the national anthem of the United States Virgin Islands.

The song was composed by Sam Williams and U.S. Virgin Island native Alton Adams in the 1920s. It served as the unofficial anthem of the U.S. Virgin Islands until 1963 when it was officially recognized by Legislative Act.[citation needed] The song itself consists of a very cheerful melody.[original research?]

Since the U.S. Virgin Islands is an American insular territory, the national anthem is still The Star-Spangled Banner.

The Guardian reporter Alex Marshall compared this anthem favourably to other national anthems, suggesting that it was reminiscent of the music of the Disney film Mary Poppins.

Alton Augustus Adams, Sr. (born November 4, 1889, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, Danish West Indies – d. November 23, 1987, Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands) is remembered primarily as the first black bandmaster in the United States Navy (beginning 1917). His music was performed by the bands of John Philip Sousa and Edwin Franko Goldman and his march "The Governor's Own" (1921) appears as the first selection on the bicentennial album Pride of America, released byNew World Records.
