Congrats to FHS Marching Band. First place class AA, Best Percussion, Fan Favorite, Best Overall Music, Visual and General Effect and GRAND CHAMPIONS at Tecumseh competition. And the fourth Superior Rating of the year. Way to end the regular season!  You can catch the Band two more times this year...at the final football game of the season (and Senior Night) this Friday versus Hamilton, and at OMEA State Competiton on Sunday at Dayton's Welcome Stadium at 7:45 pm.  Click here for spectator information for OMEA State Finals.
The Fairfield Marching Band had strong performances at recent competitions in Hamilton and Loveland.  At the Hamilton competition, the band received second place in class AA and their second Superior rating of the year.  At the Loveland competition they received 2nd place in Class AA as well as Best Percussion and Best Auxiliary, and their third Superior rating of the year. Great job to the students and staff!  You can catch the Marching Band at their final regular season competition on Saturday October 25 at the Tecumseh competition (complete schedule).  And they'll be competing in the State competition on Sunday November 2.
The Fairfield Marching Band has qualified for the OMEA State Competition by receiving Superior ratings at all of their competitions so far this year.  They will be performing at state competition on Sunday, November 2nd at 7:45 PM at University of Dayton Welcome Stadium.  Click here for details including map, schedule (not final until closer to date of event), and order forms for DVDs and T-shirts (both still to come).  Also note that parking at the event is $5 per car.  Prior to that you can catch our FHS Marching Indians on Friday nights at the football games, or in competition at Loveland High School (10/4) or Techumseh (10/25).  Let's plan to have a big crowd to support the marchers and staff on November 2.
Orders were due earlier this week, but you can still place an order online for credit to the Tempo Club. Through 12/31 go to the Tempo Club Yankee Candle Shopping Site and place an order. These orders will ship directly to you in 7-10 days, and the Tempo Club will still get credit for the sale!  Great for holiday decorating or gifts!
Each month, Tempo President Brian James will be providing insights into news and questions regarding Tempo Club.  This month, learn more about what Tempo Club does...how we raise money and what we use it for!  Check it out here!

 Thank You Fairfield!! This past Saturday, students in the Music Programs at Fairfield City Schools grades 7-12 went door to door delivering the 2014/2015 Fine Arts Calendar. As one of our largest fundraisers of the year, we want to thank the citizens of Fairfield and Fairfield Township for making the day a fantastic success. If you were not home at the time of delivery, you can still donate by either using a provided envelope with the pre-printed Tempo address or you can follow the short instructions inside the front cover of the calendar. If you did not receive a calendar and would like one, we will be distributing quantities to each of the schools in the district. Thanks again for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the upcoming concerts detailed inside the calendar.
Brian James – Tempo Club President.
