It's hard to beat a Karl L. King March and King's lively "Avenger March" is an outstanding example of his earlier marches. Andy Clark's splendid arrangement for the Barnhouse Command Series makes it a great choice for middle school and smaller high school bands. It's a great choice to lead off any concert or contest performance.
