Spring Band Concerts
May 22 and 23 at 7 p.m.
Our Spring Concerts will be shared with the JWHS bands this year. All of the bands will present some great music. And, our Innovation Hour Jazz Band will be joining in the May 22 concert, too! The performances take place in the auditorium at JWHS, with concession stand goodies available for purchase. 

Congrats to Solo & Ensemble Festival Winners!
Congratulations to the eight FCMS band members who competed at our District XIV “Solo & Ensemble Festival” on Saturday, April 13. These students practiced and prepared a solo piece or a duet selection. They performed their music for judges and all of them were awarded a score of “Superior” or “Excellent” for their performances. This is like getting a score of an “A” or a “B” on a major class project. These students will be presented with an individual MEDAL in recognition of their Solo and Ensemble Festival achievements. 

Big congratulations go out to the following Band students: Marissa Clouse, Rebekah Clouse, Charis Fouse, Hannah Smelser, Lillie Nelson, Brieanna Moreland, Emma Parker, and Georgia Ritenour. Way to go!!!
