Miami Band Day - Sept. 6

The FMB will travel to Oxford, Ohio, for the re-invention of their annual Band Day.  A tradition that dated back to the 1960's was phased out by the athletic department a few years back, but by popular demand it is being revived.  We will head out in the morning and arrive at 11:15 and rehearse with the Miami band and a dozen other high school bands.  We'll get to perform to tailgaters prior to the game then be a part of the festivities as Miami kicks off their home season against Eastern Kentucky University.  We'll return home after the game and be back at FHS around 8pm.  More details will become available as we draw nearer to the event.

Band members will get printed music during the first week of school, but can download it in advance, as well as listen to a recording of the arrangements and play along at the Miami Band Day site.

Listen: Classic - Happy

Band members who were previously committed to Honda Family Day events are excused from this event, although welcome and encouraged to attend.  All other absences are subject to the Fairbanks Band attendance policy.

A handful of parent chaperones will be needed and will be admitted free of charge.  Parents not riding the bus or the trailer can buy discounted tickets to the game (details forthcoming) but can not be admitted free.  All band families are welcome and encouraged to travel to Oxford for the fun.
