About The Band ...

The Farmington Community Band, founded in 1966 as the Farmington Civic Band, has grown from the initial six-member group to encompass today's eighty-member Concert Band, a twenty-piece Jazz Band, Clarinet Choir, Dixieland Band, Flute Ensemble, and several other small ensembles. The FCB is a non-profit organization sponsored by individual, business, and corporate patronage as well as grants from corporations such as Target. Additional support is provided by the Farmington Hills Special Services, Cultural Arts Division.

The FCB is guided and operated by a Board of Directors representing all facets of the community. The Board conducts business at regular quarterly meetings and assigns the daily operation to the executive board and the professional staff which includes the conductor, business manager, librarian, and equipment manager. The FCB is active in the community as a member of the Farmington Community Arts Council.

The FCB was founded by R. Paul Barber and his wife Fern. They envisioned a quality musical group that would not only entertain audiences, but also provide an outlet for this area's many talented musicians. The current membership represents a wide variety of occupations from many different communities. Several members have been with the band for over forty years! Membership is open to any adult, and by audition to qualified high school students, as vacancies are available. For further information call (734) 261-2202 or write to ContactUs@fcbmusic.org.

The FCB has changed its appearance since its inception, but the goal to provide the Farmington area with quality musical opportunities for performers and audiences alike has remained. We thank you for your enthusiasm and financial support that has allowed us to continue this endeavor for 49 years, and we look forward to being an important part of the community for many years to come!
