Welcome to our 50th season!
The members of the Farmington Community Band music organization are excited to once again present a wonderful variety of great music for everyone to enjoy. Our theme for this season is "A Lifetime of Music".
The FCB Concert Band at 50 is bigger than ever with more than 90 talented musicians who are committed to a lifetime journey in music. In recognition of this Golden Anniversary season, we have a few special concerts coming up to make this a memorable year for our audiences as well as our members.
Some highlights this season include our traditional festive holiday concert in December followed by a return of our popular collage concert in March. In May, you can enjoy an exciting musical introduction to spring as we welcome FCB alumni to perform with us. In June, be sure to attend the big Golden Anniversary concert at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Hall featuring guest conductors Professor H. Robert Reynolds and Dr. Ronnie Wooten, and bass trombone soloist George Curran of the New York Philharmonic with conductor Damien Crutcher, now in his 12th season as Music Director of the FCB Concert Band. Maestro Crutcher will also share the podium with local conductors, Robert Ambrose, Paul DeRubeis, and Michael Rumbell at three separate concerts throughout the season. You can also catch the outstanding sounds of the 20-piece FCB Big Band at our annual Valentine Dinner Dance or at other concert venues for a look at the "jazzy side" of the FCB.
There’s a lot to see and hear this season so stay tuned to our official media sponsor, WRCJ 90.9 FM, Facebook and our webpage for details. 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.
