FMB 2015 Presents "Carmen"
The Fairbanks Marching Band will return with a tour-de-force contest show this fall, presenting their version of Georges Bizet's "Carmen." This is the first time the FMB has tackled an opera for a field show. The music is by Randall Standridge and is suited not only to strong musical impact, but also visual impact. The band will be performing at three local contests this year (TBA). All band members currently in grades 8-11 are encouraged to participate and be part of this very special season. Select 7th graders will be invited to participate and fill out our instrumentation, which will be expanded to include several sideline percussionists as well as some prop and effects personnel.
Want to get a sneak listen at the music? Have a listen below. I hope you agree that this could knock the socks off our audiences starting in August!
