In this program, a Brass Group would later be featured with the King Band.
The program began with Reginald R. Schive tune The Spencer Fair.
The band next played Karl King's march The Three Musketeers.
The Three Musketeers, published in 1930, was dedicated to Doug Hatton, a member of the band when Karl King arrived in Fort Dodge in late fall, 1920. Hatton was with the band for more than 40 years, and served as the bandís librarian.
Doug Hattonís son, the late Thomas J. Hatton, also a band member for many years, wrote two books about Karl King and the history of the Band. The first, published in 1975, was titled Karl L. King: An American Bandmaster; and the second book was titled Hawkeye Glory. In the audience this evening were two special guests, Tom Hattonís wife, Lois, and their son, Doug coming from Lawrence, Kansas.
The overature for the evening was Orpheus by Jacques Offenbach.
The King Band's clarinet section was featured in the Russell Ward Clarinet Escapade.
The first selection with the
featured group of six players with band accompaniment was
Sextet from Lucia, written by the Italian opera composer Gaetano Donizetti.
For their second selection, this Brass group performed The Saints Hallelujah!, originally written for The Canadian Brass. This clever arrangement combines Handelís The Hallelujah Chorus and When the Saints Go Marching In.
This version of The Saints Hallelujah! was arranged by ISU Director of Band Michael Golemo.
