Music Mentors – Week of October 20th

We hope you all enjoyed the weekend! It was beautiful weather and the Cards captured another WIN! This week is a busy week so there is lots of information. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Senior night, Friday, Oct. 25th
We will be honoring our Seniors during pre-game at our final regular season home game, this Friday, October 25th. All Seniors or their family members should have responded to the survey sent out to you regarding information to be announced at the game. If you have not, this information is on the home page of the website.
Those escorting their Senior during pre-game should arrive at the stadium between 5:45 and 6:00 pm to give yourselves ample time to park and purchase your tickets at the main gate. Once you have done so, please walk underneath the bleachers past the two concession areas where you will find someone gathering the Senior parents together. Once everyone arrives, as a group, we will proceed on the track where you will line up for the announcements. After you have walked across the field with your Senior, you will be escorted to the end zone where a photograph will be taken. Once all photos are completed, parents will then go to the bleachers to enjoy the game and root on our favorite football team!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Angel Yanni at or Sheila Kaifesh at

Brunswick Competition, Saturday, October 26th
Performance time is 8:30 pm. Call time is 3 pm. Make sure your marcher has eaten before they come, brought warm clothes to layer underneath and brings money for concessions. For those attending this competition, there is an admission fee of $6.

Indoor Concert, Sunday, October 27th at 3 pm
Please join us for our annual Indoor Concert in the gym. This is a great opportunity for those who don’t like to chance the elements to come and watch the FCMB perform all their music from the season. Please use the gym doors to enter. Call time for the students will be 1:30 pm to give them ample time to dress in their uniforms.
As noted below, you may turn in RSVP’s for the banquet at this event and purchase your raffle tickets early. This will be the only time we will be taking credit cards.

State Marching Band Finals
The FCMB will be going to SMBF on November 9th at Brunswick High School. Our performance time will be 6:45 pm. Call time to be determined.

FCMB Banquet
The FCMB Banquet will be held at LaMalfa on Sunday, November 17th from 3 – 8 pm. The cost is $25 per person. This is a wonderful way to honor our marchers on such a wonderful and successful season. RSVP forms for the banquet are linked below! RSVP’s with payment are due by November 4th.

Raffle tickets for the basket raffles will be sold before and after the Indoor Concert. If you’d like to get your tickets early so that you can write your name on them ahead of time, this is your chance.
