Spartan Pride Marching Band

Join Manchester’s newest group – The Spartan Pride Marching Band! We began in the fall of 2020 and performed for home crowds, area high schools, and even a video shoot! This is a fantastic opportunity to join in the early stages as we build MU’s next great ensemble. Scholarships are available for both music majors and non-majors! 

The Spartan Pride is under the direction of Dr. Scott Humphries, director of bands and music education. You may email him directly with any questions at
