Welcome to Season 54!
The members of the FCB are looking forward to presenting another exciting season of great music for you to enjoy. Our big news, this year, is that we have moved to a new home at North Farmington High School in Farmington Hills, and we are looking forward to performing in their beautiful newly renovated auditorium. Maestro Damien Crutcher has been working with the FCB Board of Directors to develop a concert season filled with an entertaining sampling of exciting and demanding new musical literature along with a few classics. Highlights this season begin with “Fight Songs and Cider” at historic Franklin Cider Mill. Next up is Spooktacular XXXIV - “At the Movies,” a delightful Halloween bash featuring selections from blockbuster movies including the music from “Black Panther” and the “Avengers.” In December, enjoy getting “In the Spirit” with an avant garde selection of music themes from “Star Wars” to “Pacem” to “Jingle Bells.” March takes us “Back to School” for a combined concert with the fine band students at Farmington High School to show students what opportunities lie beyond high school in the world of music. In May, the band travels to Nardin Park Methodist Church in Farmington Hills for a “Sunday Afternoon” concert presenting an eclectic array of great music for concert band including “Scenes from the Louvre” and “Girl With the Flaxen Hair.” In the summer you can enjoy a couple of traditional outdoor concerts at Heritage Park in Farmington Hills and at Riley Park in Farmington. Also, don’t forget to catch the FCB Big Band, under the direction of Mr. Randy Barber, for the jazzy side of the FCB at the annual Valentine Dinner Dance and at Heritage Park in July.
There’s a lot to see and hear this season! Keep up to date with all of our events by visiting the FCB website, and Facebook for details. You can also sign up for our FCB concert news email by clicking here.
The FCB will continue its mission to present a wide variety of music for everyone to enjoy and promote the concept of music education for life. From kids in their schools, to band festivals, dinner dances, seniors in nursing homes, and formal concerts, it is our wish to extend a musical greeting to everyone who loves fine music.
