FMU Concert Band

The Francis Marion University Concert Band is composed of FMU students as well as community members from Florence, Lake City, Darlington, Dillon, Hartsville, Columbia, Marion and surrounding areas. Community members include professional area music educators, band directors, choir directors, ministers of music, and FMU music faculty members. Due to the quality of the local talent of the band members, the group has been tagged the “Who’s Who of the Florence Instrumental Music Scene.” Membership is open to all FMU students and area residents who are experienced concert band instrumentalists. Performances include traditional concert band music as well as popular and show music. The program began as a way to give students of FMU a chance to perform music, earn academic credit for performance in the ensemble, and to become involved with other students in campus life.

Beginning in the spring of 2002, the FMU Concert Band rehearsals were scheduled on Tuesday evenings and adult musicians from the region were invited to participate. The band continues to rehearse every Tuesday evening.

We are always seeking additional participants; if you play a band instrument or know someone looking for a place to play, please contact us.
