Nathan Martin, ’20, performs a trumpet solo during the concert, Dec. 10.

Kicking off the last week of school, the FC band and percussion groups perform in the ‘A Suite of Sweets’ production in the SMC, Dec. 10. This show is the first concert of the year with 13 selections including both solos and group performances.

A few crowd favorites from the Nutcracker themed event include; ‘Nutcracker To-Go’ performed by the percussion ensemble and ‘Jingle Ye Merry Gentlemen’ by the Eagle band.

As the night progressed, a select group of students from both color guard and band was honored by receiving their letter as well as their patch.

While sipping hot chocolate and eating desserts the crowd awaited the finale, ‘Brazillian Bell Carol,’ in which all bands participated.

Thank you to both Lesley Bannister, instrumental director, and David Casuga for the production of the event.

The following video features two songs from the event; ‘Hot Chocolate,’ and ‘Brazilian Bell Carol.’
