Manhattan Municipal Band

The Manhattan Municipal Band will host the final performance of its Summer Concert Series at the Larry Norvell Band Shell in Manhattan City Park at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

This summer concert is free and open to the public and will feature this season’s musical highlights of the Manhattan Municipal Band.

The Manhattan Municipal Band has been a feature of the Manhattan and K-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 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, professor of music and director of bands. Come out tonight to be entertained and witness a Manhattan and K-State tradition with almost 100 years of history.
