Ferris Community Summer Band Prepares for Season #54!

MAKE MUSIC!  •  ENRICH THE COMMUNITY!  •  ENJOY THE SUMMER BAND!

ABOUT THE BAND

Sponsored by Ferris State University as part of its “Music for Life!” initiative, the Ferris Community Summer Band is celebrating its 54th year of bringing the campus and the community together through music.  It is open — at no cost — to all area adults, college students, high school students, and advanced middle school students with band experience.  In order to perform in a concert, musicians should attend the rehearsal beforehand.  Musicians are invited to perform in as many weeks that fit into their schedules.  Musical friends and relatives visiting in town this summer are also welcome.  To participate, either contact director Scott Cohen in advance (231-591-2484 or RichardScottCohen@ferris.edu), or simply come to the next rehearsal!

6 CONCERTS:  ALL ARE AT 7:00 P.M. AND ARE FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Weekly Ferris Community Summer Band Concerts are presented outdoors throughout the greater Big Rapids area, including the new Big Rapids Band Shell, the Canadian Lakes Castle, and local parks.  All of them support local community activities and organizations such as the Big Rapids Old Jail, the annual Spectrum Health Big Rapids Hospital Community Health Fair, the Canadian Lakes Association, and the annual Big Rapids Band Shell Concert Summer Series.
