  • LCMEA Marching Band Festival

    UPDATED CALL TIME FOR TONIGHT! Call time has been moved to 4:45 PM . The directors have reviewed this with the students in class today.

    The LCMEA marching band festival will be held on Wednesday, September 20th at 7 pm at Mentor High School. Marching bands from our Lake County area schools will come and perform their halftime shows. This is a great opportunity for family and friends to see the FCMB perform, along with our neighboring school bands. There is an admission donation at the gate of $5.00. These proceeds go towards the LCMEA scholarship fund.

    Reminders for our students:
    * Marchers will dress for the “Full” or “White” uniform for this week. You must have your white gloves.
    * You should have your black dri wick shirt for underneath the competition shirt.
    * Wear your tall black socks.
