Tracz Family Band Hall OPENS
As you walk through the front entryway of the brand new K-State Tracz Family Band Hall, you’ll immediately get a feel for what sort of place this is and just how much it’s going to mean to the students who will soon occupy it.
“We’re ready,” says Frank Tracz, professor of music and director of bands at K-State. “It’s a pretty amazing place. It’s beyond description.”
Band 'Cats Pantry Opens at the Tracz Family Band Hall
The mission of the Band 'Cats Pantry is to provide temporary, supplemental food, personal hygiene, and paper products to KSUMB members at not cost to them.
The Band Cats Pantry aspires to eliminate food insecurity for KSUMB students by providing readily available supplemental food before and after rehearsals, performances, and any other time that students need it. This will help ensure tat no student in our band program goes hungry because of a lack of income of access to food.
If you would like to donate to the Bad 'Cats Pantry, please consider using our Amazon Wishlist! As always, if you prefer to donate items in person for the Band 'Cats Pantry, you can deliver them to the Tracz Family Band Hall!
