Chesapeake March is a parade-style march which begins with flutes and drums quietly playing the opening melody, as if approaching from afar. The full band enters in and restates the initial theme while clarinets play a smooth legato trio section. Flutes and drums close the piece giving the impression of the band marching away and fading into the distance.
