The Bonner Springs Marching Invitational is a unique educational opportunity for bands. After each band performs they stay on the field to receive a thirty minute marching clinic with Dr. Frank Tracz and his graduate marching staff from K-State. During the clinic students receive immediate feedback on their performance from Dr. Tracz followed up by sectionals led by the K-State graduate students. Since our event is during the school day there are no conflicts with other activities or athletics, but our clinic format limits the number of bands we can accommodate. Invitations are sent to schools that participated the previous year. Please contact Bill Turley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested on getting on the waiting list.
Admission to the festival is free of charge. We will have a concession stand open during the day.
