I was wondering how many members there are in the Kansas University marching band this year. It looks extremely small. Do they receive any stipend to help pay their expenses for all the practicing they do and that sort of thing?
There are 190 members of KU Marching Band this year, said Cindy Koester, office manager for the band program. That is up by 30-40 students from last year, Koester said. The stipend is determined at the end of the year and depends on donated funds available, she said. Last year, members received $100 if they had marched for three years and $200 if they had marched for four years, she said.
