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.

Congratulations to the FCHS Band on an outstanding marching season. This has been by far the youngest group since I have been here and they have been an absolute joy to work with. Please take a minute to congratulate them on a job well done!

The Fayette Christmas Parade will be on December 1st. The students will meet at the Fayette Civic Center Parking lot at 5:00 p.m. Look for the trailer! We will join the parade at that point and march to Just past Charles’ Cafeteria.  Students will then be dismissed. All Tubas and Drums will report back immediately to the trailer and load their equipment. The trailer will only be open for 30 min past the time we depart from the parade. If equipment is not loaded at that time you will be responsible for getting it back to the High School. THIS IS A REQUIRED PERFORMANCE for all members of the High School Band.

Please remember also the Christmas Concert will be December 9th at 6:00 p.m. Call time for the High School Band will be 5:40. The concert will take place in the FCHS Performing Arts Center (aka the gym) and will feature the Middle School Bands, The High School Choir and the FCHS Band. We look forward to seeing you there! (Admission is free, donations will be accepted at the door.)
