Men of Valor (march). Published in 1920 by John Church Company and reissued in 1951. There is
no dedication to the march. Men of Valor was one of 24 of Klohrs pieces recorded on Heritage of
the March. This march can be successfully used as a street march.

John Nicholas Klohr was a prolific composer for band. He was


a professional vaudeville trombonist and performed with local
concert bands in the Cincinnati area (including over 50 years
with the Syrian Temple Shrine Band and the Henry Fillmore
Band). For a number of years, Klohr was editor and head of
the band and orchestra department for the John Church
Publishing Company. Among his most well known works are
The Billboard and Men of Valor.

DOB: 1869 (Cincinnati, Ohio)


DOD: 1956 (Cincinnati, Ohio)
