Program Notes

Burma Patrol has been a long-time favorite of march aficionados around the world who recognize quality music when they hear it. It goes without saying that Karl King was a master at creating popular, tuneful marches and no concert would be complete without one of his rousing renditions! This has been a long-time favorite of march aficionados around the world and it is a real treat to have this edition available. A real toe-tapping experience, this is another wonderful march from the long list of gems by this master composer.

- Program Note by publisher

Part of King's World War II Marching to Victory collection, Burma Patrol is a rare march as it is set in a minor key and brings back the first strain before proceeding to the trio.
