Program Notes

Karl L. King was a master of writing tuneful marches that are playable, yet "meaty" enough for advanced bands. James Swearingen's effective adaptation of this superb march assures your band will know the thrill of playing a King march, yet keeps the technical aspects within reach of developing bands.
