Marching Band Exhibition THIS Saturday!

The 44th annual Fulton County School Marching Band Exhibition will be THIS SATURDAY September 22, 2018 at Cambridge High School.  As our website calendar has indicated, we will be rehearsing prior to going to CHS, beginning at 12pm.

Please open / download the Saturday Schedule.    

Please remember to bring your water cooler and a sack lunch with you to hold you through the afternoon.  It is recommended that you eat a good meal prior to arriving to school Saturday.  We will get a meal at Cambridge - but you will need food to hold you over after rehearsal.  The event begins at 5:45pm.  Our performance time is 8pm.  

Parents, please come out to Cambridge HS and enjoy an evening of Marching Bands as you support our Raider Band.  As an added bonus you can tell your relatives that live around the world that the FCMBE is being broadcast LIVE on https://banddirector.com   Plus, this is the only time we get to see some of the other schools in our district!

All State Etude recordings

Several University Professors and Professional Musicians now record the All State Etudes and even give instruction right on Youtube.  Go to our "MUSIC" page to see if you're etude has been video recorded.  There are some amazing teachers and performers who are willing to do this, please take advantage of the opportunity!!!

Practice Friday - postponed

Due to several reasons (field condition, missing students, and progress) we have postponed our weather makeup rehearsal scheduled for Friday 9/7/18.  It may or may not be rescheduled, so PLEASE watch the calendar carefully for updates.  Enjoy your Friday off!


GMEA has just posted the etudes and requirements for 2019 All State Band.  Please go to the GMEA website and be sure to download the correct etudes according to your grade level. If you have any questions please one of your Directors.  Work hard, U CAN DO IT!!!!

Schedule Clarifications

Thank you to the parents who email questions in to us - we appreciate the communication! 

Parents, POINT OF CLARIFICATION:  Please be sure to click on each calendar event to see if there is any embedded info about that event.  Often times important details will be embedded.  There are several Teacher Work Days and Teacher Professional Development Days on the year-long schedule that may state "Teachers Only."  But if there is a performance on that day, we will most definitely still be meeting students that day and performing.  If you click on an event and there is no info embedded - and you need more info, please email us and we'll be happy to clarify and provide.  We do our best to communicate often and as clear as possible but like everyone else, fall short sometimes. Your questions are welcomed!
