Program Notes

Karl King was a true American march master, and The Soaring Eagle is one of his finest and most tuneful marches. Memorable melodies, exciting countermelodies, and woodwind obbligatos combine to make this an outstanding choice for mature bands. Originally entitled Cle Elum Eagles, this edition for the Karl L. King Centennial Series provides a wealth of historical and performance material, as well as background on this great march.

- Program Note from publisher

This work may have been originally written for the Fraternal Order of Eagles chapter in Cle Elum, Washington State. The score bears the dedication "Dedicated to James Bertello and the Cle Elum (Wash.) Eagles Band."
