Who we are

Manhattan, Kansas has had a tax-supported Municipal Band since 1920 when the city adopted a tax levy for that purpose. The band played its first concert on the lawn of the Riley County Courthouse. Over the years the band's membership has come from all conceivable walks of life, including students, staff, and faculty from Kansas State University, Manhattan Christian College and surrounding public schools, as well as military and civilian personnel from nearby Fort Riley, representatives of the community's diverse private sector, clergy, and retirees.

The Manhattan Municipal Band is very proud of its history and its place as a central part of life in Manhattan, Kansas. Nearly every resident of this town has somehow been touched by the municipal band, whether as a performing member or as part of our audience. As we close in on a century of service to central Kansas we look forward to continued growth and excellence. If you are, or have ever been a member of the Manhattan Municipal Band, we hope that you will always take pride in that affiliation. If you have ever been a member of our audience we thank you for your support and hope for your many returns. If you have never attended one of our performances we hope that you will take advantage of that opportunity very soon so that you can experience this wonderful community we call home.
