Trombone Day a Success!
Our first K-State Trombone Day on November 1st was an incredible success with 35 high school trombone players joining us for the Oklahoma State game. Our guest trombone players got to see what it was like to spend a day as a member of the KSUMB trombone section. All of our trombone players also got the benefit of learning from and performing with Lance LaDuke. A great time was had by all and the performance at halftime was a special one. Thanks to all the participants and the band directors/parents who sent them. GO CATS!
