In 1962, Karl King composed his last great march and dedicated it to his long time friend Meredith Willson of "The Music Man" fame. All the wonderful components of a classic march are evident throughout this toe tapping selection. His long list of popular marches continues to be performed around the world and, hopefully, this new and exciting edition will find its way into the music folders of your students. A real crowd pleaser!
