FMB 2014: Les Miserables!
I've been waiting over 20 years to find the right band and the right arrangement to put Les Miserables on the field for the FMB. This Is The Season! Our first show (and contest/festival show) will be from the famed Broadways musical. Our SECOND show, for early October, will a two-tune Katy Perry show. In October, we'll start working on the senior show, with music chosen by the FMB seniors.

ADAPT TO CHANGE :)
You may have already heard, but Fairbanks Middle School will not have classes on Monday, December 18 and Tuesday, December 19 due to the fact that there is no heat in the building. FES and FHS will have classes as regularly scheduled.
The December 18 Holiday Concert will progress as planned. JHCB and 6th Grade Band will obviously not have dress rehearsals. 6th grade band members (and FHSCB helpers) are to be in their seats in the gym at 6:55pm to warm up. FHSCB and JHCB members are to be in their seats with families at 7pm and ready to watch the 6th grade band.
MS band members - I know that we will not get a chance to rehearse in the gym, but we will be fine if you rely on your training and trust the rehearsal process. Let's make music to the best of our abilities, despite missing these last two rehearsals. I have no doubt you will be successful.
The 6th grade band reward pizza party will be rescheduled for January. The 5th grade party will take place on Monda…
Once again the FMB has the honor of playing for both of our community Memorial Day observances. Please see report times below. Dress is Summer uniform. Repertoire is Victors, SSB, and America the Beautiful.
