Fillmore Central band concert - “Spring Into Action!”


Mon, Apr 13th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Features

The Fillmore Central Band Department is proud to announce its upcoming concert on Monday, April 27 at 8 p.m. in the Harmony Varsity Gym. (This is a change from the school calendar due to gym renovations at the Preston site.)

This year’s concert is entitled “Spring Into Action” and will feature the FC 5-6th grade concert band, 7-8th grade concert band, and 9-12th grade symphonic band.

The theme recognizes the effort and sacrifice of our area Wounded Warriors. It involves our students giving back to those individuals and their families. Several selections will be performed in their honor. Two of those pieces are original works by director, Lane M. Powell, and will have their premieres that evening. All proceeds from the future sales of these pieces will be donated to the Minn. chapter of the Wounded Warriors by the composer.

The FC Band students will also be presenting members of the Wounded Warrior Project with a donation from “Wake Up To The Band” fundraiser that is going on right now. Tickets are just $5 and are available through a high school band member or by calling the band office.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend. We hope to see you there and consider doing what you can to “Spring Into Action” in support of our local heroes.
