The Karl L. King Municipal Band of Fort Dodge will perform at 3:30 p.m. April 15 at Decker Auditorium, Iowa Central Community College, in its third indoor concert for the 2012 winter season. There is no admission charge.
Selections by the band's namesake, Karl L. King, will include his last published march, "The Home Town Boy," which was published 50 years ago in 1962, along with "Sells-Floto Triumphal," the "Whippet Race Galop," and a ragtime song, "Ragged Rozey."
Other selections on the program include the march, "The Chimes of Liberty" by Richard Franko Goldman, highlights from the Broadway musical "West Side Story," John Philip Sousa's "Easter Monday on the White House Lawn," and two classical selections, "Entry March of the Boyares" by the Norwegian composer Johann Halvorsen, and "Procession of the Sardar" by the Russian composer Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov.
The Karl L. King scholarships will be presented at the program. Several students will audition during the day, and the winners will be recognized with $500 scholarships to Iowa Central Community College or a $1,000 scholarship to any four-year Iowa college or university.
The band is conducted by Jerrold P. Jimmerson; Dr. David Klee is the assistant conductor and Duane "Oley" Olson is the band's announcer.
