The Fayette County High School and Middle School Bands are comprised of almost 300 students. Mrs. Susan Seymour is the Director of Bands at Fayette Middle School. Under her leadership the band has continued to grow and expand both in quality and quantity. The Middle School Bands have achieved Superior ratings at the Alabama Bandmasters Association State Concert Assessment the past three years. This is the highest rating possible for High School and Middle School Bands. The Fayette County High School Band is under the leadership of Mr. Kevin Thomas. While the Director of Bands the band has maintained an average of 25% of the school population being involved in the band program. This is far above the national average for High School Bands. The High School Concert Bands have also achieved a Superior rating at State Concert Assessment the past two years. They consistently play the highest level of music and do so at a Superior level. Under the tutelage of Mrs. Seymour and Mr. Thomas, the band will strive to maintain the highest level of achievement and musical education.

The F.C.H.S. band will have pictures made on April 9th. Students should bring their uniform to school. We will begin pictures with students that are able to at 1:30 and take the remainder of the students during 7th period. Majorettes should also bring their uniforms. Parents will be able to purchase these pictures the same as school day pictures. Students will bring home a package and be able to order them at that time. We will also be doing a composite picture that will be placed in the band room.


The Spring Concert for the High School is May 4th. Students will wear Sunday dress clothes for this performance. Please come and support our students in their final performance for the year. This concert will feature the Concert Band and the Percussion Ensemble. We look forward to seeing you there!



On April 27th  all uniforms and remaining fees are due. Uniforms should be dry cleaned before being returned. If they are not returned with the dry cleaning ticket the students will be assessed a $25 fee for cleaning. Please be diligent in taking care of these items as they are very important to the close of the 2014 - 2015 school year.
