Manhattan Municipal Band

The Manhattan Municipal Band will be kicking off its Summer Concert series at the Larry Norvell Band Shell in Manhattan City Park at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

This summer concert series is free and open to the public and will feature performances every Tuesday night through June and the beginning of July.

The Manhattan Municipal Band has been a feature of the Manhattan and Kansas State communities for more than 90 years and performs entertaining concerts comprised of jazz, standard, classical and patriotic tunes.  The Municipal Band draws participation from K-State faculty and students across all academic disciplines as well as many local Manhattan citizens. The band is sponsored by the city of Manhattan and the K-State department of music, and is under the direction of Frank Tracz. Come out tonight to be entertained and witness a Manhattan and K-State tradition with almost 100 years of history.
