Program Notes

Karl King was one of the most popular and prolific composers of wind band music, particularly marches. Not only did he compose some of the most brilliant and famous marches for experienced bands and the professional and university levels; he also displayed a remarkable ability to compose first-rate music for younger, less-experienced musicians and bands. His music continues to be performed by bands of all experience levels.
