Karl King was a true master at writing easier marches and "Valley Forge" is one of his nicest. Just one time through the Trio of this march and you'll know immediately why this was one of King's most popular marches. James Swearingen's new arrangement, with full concert band instrumentation, subtle rescoring and careful editing, guarantees "Valley Forge" to be a perfect choice for concert or contest use. Unbeatable!
