K-State Music Camp and the Manhattan Municipal Band

By Donald Linn

The Manhattan Municipal Band will present a concert with the participants of the K-State Music Camp at 7:30 p.m. today in City Park.

The band has been serving the K-State and Manhattan Community for 92 years, presenting concerts during the summer at City Park's Larry Norvell Band Shell. The band plays a mix of patriotic music, classic marches, Broadway hits and jazz standards, and features soloists. 

The K-State Music Camp is now in its 20th year and provides Kansas middle school and high school band students an opportunity to live and play at K-State, learning from some outstanding music educators and staff. Along with playing with the Municipal Band on Tuesday evening, the campers will present their own concert at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13, at K-State's All Faiths Chapel.
