The April, 2008 Scholarship Concert
The third and final program in the series of three 2008 winter concerts by the Karl L. King Municipal Band of Fort Dodge was held on Sunday afternoon, April 13, in the Decker Auditorium on the campus of Iowa Central Community College. The College had chosen Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States for its cultural emphasis, so the program reflected that focus by offering music from a few of Russias finest composers.
