Welcome to our 51st season!
Following our Golden Anniversary performance at historic Orchestra Hall in June, the members of the FCB our looking forward to presenting another exciting season of great music for you to enjoy. In the spirit of of the 50 year FCB legacy we will be performing a wide variety of music in different formats in and around the Farmington community. Maestro Damien Crutcher has been working with the band to develop a concert season filled with an entertaining sampling of traditional literature and some exciting new compositions as well.
Some highlights this season include Spooktacular XXXI - "Area 51" featuring a few extraterrestrials to help celebrate our 51st season with some help from the band students in Farmington Schools. In December, enjoy our traditional holiday concert featuring Euphonium soloist Joe Broom, a special appearance by the FCB Big Band, and a thrilling new composition, Joy Ride! by Michael Markowski. Our "March Madness" concert features guest conductor Dr. Kevin Seditole, Director of Bands at Michigan State University. In May, we hope to see you at St. James Catholic Church in Novi for a concert rich in the spirit of song and dance. And, don't forget to catch the FCB Big Band under the direction of Randy Barber at the annual Valentine Dinner Dance and at Heritage Park in the summer.
