The Manhattan Municipal Band will present the final performance of its Summer Concert Series at 8 p.m. Friday, July 17, at the Larry Norvell Band Shell in Manhattan City Park.

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

The 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 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.
