Kansas university cancels stadium march on annual band day
September 3, 2017
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — High school musicians participating in this year's University of Kansas Band Day won't be strutting their stuff at Memorial Stadium after nearly 70 years of doing so.
The university has welcomed hundreds of young musicians from Missouri and Kansas high schools each year to perform alongside its Marching Jayhawks at Memorial Stadium, the Lawrence Journal-World reported.
This year's event Sept. 9 will keep the traditional parade through downtown before the game, but it won't host a mass band performance on the field during the football game against Central Michigan.
