Kansas State Bands

Kansas State University Band

The University Band is a non-auditioned ensemble which meets Spring semesters. It not only provides a quality ensemble experience for students from all majors on campus, but a valuable opportunity for music education majors to perform on secondary instruments. Music education majors who are taking independent study in conducting also frequently have opportunities to rehearse the band on a weekly basis, and conduct the band in concert.

Abigail Baeten
Jasmine Bannister
Lizzy DeRoulet
Adi Millen
Connor Penton
Abby Thompson
Melissa Sauls
