FSU Community Summer Band - Schedule 2014

ABOUT THE BAND

Sponsored by Ferris State University as part of its "Music for Life!" initiative, the Ferris Community Summer Band is celebrating its 49th year of bringing the campus and the community together through music.  It is open -- at no cost -- to all area adults, college students, high school students, and advanced middle school students with band experience.  In order to perform in a concert, musicians should attend the rehearsal beforehand.  Musicians are invited to perform in as many weeks that fit into their schedules.  Musical friends and relatives visiting in town this summer are also welcome.  To participate, either contact director Scott Cohen in advance (231-591-2484 or cohenr@ferris.edu), or simply come to the next rehearsal!

6 UPCOMING CONCERTS:  ALL ARE AT 7:00 P.M. AND ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Weekly Ferris Community Summer Band Concerts are presented outdoors throughout the greater Big Rapids area, including the new Big Rapids Band Shell, the Canadian Lakes Castle, and local parks.  All of them support local community endeavors such as the Roof Replacement Project at the Old Jail, the annual Mecosta County Medical Center Auxiliary Community Block Party, the Canadian Lakes Association, and the City of Big Rapids annual Band Shell Concert Summer Series.
