Falcon Marching Band (FMB) is more than a half-time show or a parade. It takes a certain kind of person to put on the Orange and Brown, a special type of personality to be in the band, and a specific level of musical ability to play our Alma Mater. Our family of musicians welcome everyone who has the dedication, talent and attitude required to represent our college on the field or on the road.
Every year, we attract students from across the United States to march in our ensemble. Thanks to our strong culture, powerful musical presence and recruiting efforts, our band is one of the largest in the MAC, as well as one of the sharpest dressed. This campaign began during Homecoming 2016 with a lead gift of $50,000 to springboard the design and purchase of new uniforms, as well as provide marching band student scholarships. At this point, more than $120,000 has been raised, the uniforms have been purchased, delivered, and were debuted at the Home Opener! This Falcon Funded project is designed to garner attention and support for the scholarship piece of the campaign mentioned above.
Scholarships for our band students will help offset the rising costs of a college education; keeping the family of Falcon Marching Band members playing together.
Alumni and friends, we need your assistance. Show your school pride by investing in the marching band's future. Your SOUND investment will ensure the continued growth and success of our Falcon Marching Band.
Your help today will help the band stand strong at half-time!
