Program Notes

As a composer, King was one of the most prolific and popular in the history of band music. He composed at least 291 works, including 185 marches, 22 overtures, 12 gallops, 29 waltzes, and works in many other styles. Not only did he compose some of the most brilliant and famous marches for experienced bands at the professional and university levels, but he also displayed a remarkable ability to compose first-rate music for younger, less experienced musicians and bands.

Our Heritage is one of Karl King’s nicest “easier” marches. Mr. Swearingen’s skillful arrangement is articulated to bring out the best performance by bands of all ages.
