The Fort Wayne Area Community Band will perform its spring concert on the campus of Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne on Tuesday, May 1, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. The Fort Wayne Area Community Band (FWACB) will perform familiar tunes, including Way Back Home Again in Indiana, tunes from the musical drama Fiddler on the Roof, and The Trombone Rag. Admission: $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $2 for children 6 and over. IPFW students are free with ID. The concert is located at John & Ruth Rhinehart Music Center at Auer Performance Hall on the Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne campus, 2101 Coliseum Blvd. The new parking garage across from the Music Center is open and concert goers are invited to park for free. This concert is a great opportunity for an affordable date or a spring fling with girlfriends or a family to enjoy. The Fort Wayne Area Community Band is another example of our community spirit and talent. The approximately 80 musicians, students and professionals from the Fort Wayne community strive together to bring the blessing of music to citizens several times throughout the year. The results are professional tunes that get your feet tapping and your spirit lifting. Since its formation in 1979, the FWACB has had several directors, all highly qualified and respected as musicians. Currently, Scott Humphries, Assistant Professor of Music at Manchester College, is current director of the Fort Wayne Community Band.
