ABOUT THE BAND
Sponsored by Ferris State University as part of its “Music for Life!” initiative, the Ferris Community Summer Band is celebrating its 53rd 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. Ferris students may also select to take Summer Band for credit as Music 160: Symphony Band.
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!
