The Karl L. King Municipal Band of Fort Dodge, Iowa

The April concert of the 2017 Indoor Concert Series

April 2, 2017

      This was the third  concert in the 2017 Indoor Concert series held in the Decker Auditorium on the campus of Iowa Central Community College.

     This April concert coincides with Iowa Central Community College’s Focus series.  This year the college has chosen the country of Kosovo and the Balkan region for its cultural emphasis, and these selections on the program reflected their heritage in music.

     Eleven talented students auditioned during the day, and the winners were recognized during the program.  Two received $500 scholarships to Iowa Central Community College, and one was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to a 4-year Iowa college or university.   Providing the funds for these awards are the King Band Scholarship fund, along with Dr. Greg Olson in memory of his parents and his wife’s parents, and Peggy and the late Tom Dowd.  Learn more about the King Foundation Scholarships.
