Successful Central States Marching Festival

Submitted by the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance

On Oct. 14, the Kansas State University Marching Band hosted its annual Central States Marching Festival in Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

Thousands of high school students and spectators enjoyed the performances of 40 high school bands, with a finale performed by The Pride of Wildcat Land. Throughout the day, 15 bands received one-hour clinics, where they worked with K-State students and staff to help improve their musical and marching performance.

The festival was coordinated by Frank Tracz, director of bands, and worked by K-State Marching Band students and staff.

The Kansas State University Marching Band thanks K-State Athletics for the use of their faculties and for their continued support of this event.
