The Fulton Music Association’s 15th annual Celebration of Community Music featuring the Fulton Community Band and a variety of local talent will be presented Saturday, May 19 at 7 p.m. at the G. Ray Bodley High School Auditorium.

The winners of the 2012 FMA senior music awards will also be announced and each recipient will perform at the event.

The concert will feature performances by the Cortini Brothers Jazz Experience, The Classic Touch barbershop quartet, the Holy Family/St. Michaels choir under the direction of Dolores Walrath; the Fulton Community Band under the direction of Carol Fox, and the Hamer Sing-Along group.

The community band will be performing music by Holst, Morricone, Leroy Anderson and Sousa.

“All concert participants are generously donating their time to help raise funds for FMA,” said Steve Chirello, FMA president. “In addition to helping high school students receive FMA awards this spring, FMA members will continue to help sponsor Fulton’s summer concert series, the recital series presented in cooperation with the SUNY Oswego Music Department, and bring special performances by the U.S Army’s 10th Mountain Div. Band right here to Fulton.”

Tickets for the event may be purchased at the door. Those seeking further information may call Carol Fox at 591-3392 or Chirello at 592-9778.
