Band Director Day is brought to us by the Kansas State University Athletic Department and University Bands. This day is a chance for area band directors to enjoy some hospitality and excitement of K-State football. It is our way of saying thank you for all the hard work and long hours that you put into your work.
Students and their directors march a short parade through downtown Manhattan and enjoy the festivities of K-State Football! Additionally, all woodwind, brass, flags, twirlers, and dancers are invited to join the K-State Band for a massed half-time performance.
Based on the success of Tuba Day, Trumpet Day, and Trombone Days in the past. We would like to now invite Tuba and Euphonium players to spend a game day with the Pride of Wildcat Land. Participating horn players will have a chance to interact with the KSUMB on game day, perform at halftime for 50,000+ fans, and have the experience of a lifetime. A free ball cap and t-shirt will be provided to each participant.
We invite you to once again "Play for the Pride" this summer and help us with our scholarship drive. Please put together your team and encourage others to join you! All proceeds from this event will go towards scholarships for the upperclassmen members of the K-State Marching Band and Classy Cats.
