The success of all FC Band and Guard programs depends on the involvement of family and friends as volunteers. The New Year brings with it many opportunities for you to be involved, including a need for leads. Please consider the following openings!

EVENTS Co-lead/Assistant

If you are interested in what it's like to run one of our events or have an interest in helping behind the scenes as an Event lead, please reach out to events@fcbands.org for more information

Uniform Lead for MB Season 2023

It takes many hands to make sure our students look their best in their uniforms. FCMB is seeking a volunteer to take the lead on this important task! The Uniform Lead will ensure all students are sized into uniforms before the season starts and will be the go-to for maintenance during performances and competitions. To express interest or for more information: marchingbandliaison@fcbands.org

Prop Lead for MB Season 2023

Are you handy and creative? FCMB is seeking a prop lead for next Marching Band season. This would be the perfect time to get involved so the next lead can shadow the current team and get to know the routine. The props lead oversees all efforts across marching band, percussion symphony, and winter guards. More information: proplead@fcbands.org
