Celebrate Independence Day with the Manhattan Municipal Band

By Don Linn

The Manhattan Municipal Band, under the direction of Frank Tracz, will present a Fourth of July concert at 6:30 p.m. Monday, July 4, at City Park's Larry Norvell Band Shell. The concert is free and open to the public.

The concert will include the traditional marches "Semper Fi," "Invincible Eagle" and "Stars and Stripes Forever," all by John Philip Sousa, as well as other patriotic favorites, including "America The Beautiful" and "Armed Forces Salute," which honors each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Manhattan Municipal Band is celebrating its 96th year and membership is comprised of K-State faculty, Manhattan community members, students and members of the 1st Infantry Division Band at Fort Riley.
