Frank Tracz inducted into the Conn-Selmer Institute Hall of Fame

Dr. Frank Tracz, Director of Bands and professor of music, was inducted into the Conn-Selmer Institute Hall of Fame this past Tuesday. The Conn-Selmer Institute is a three and a half day professional development conference for college students, directors, and music program leaders held every June on the beautiful campus of Bethel College in Mishawaka, Indiana. CSI equips current and future music educators with practical skills and relevant strategies addressing current trends in music education. The curriculum is comprised of inspiring workshops led by world-class clinicians.

Dr. Tracz has been on the faculty at the Conn-Selmer Institute every summer since 2006. He remains active as a conductor, clinician, and educator for Conn-Selmer throughout the year. Several K-State graduate and undergraduate students attended this past week’s institute where they collaborated with music educators and music professionals from all across the country.

Conn-Selmer is the leading manufacturer and distributor of musical instruments for student, amateur, and professional use. They are currently the largest American musical instrument manufacturer.
