City of Fairfax Band To Perform in France at D-Day Ceremonies
The City of Fairfax Band (CFB) is headed to France June 1-8 to perform in Normandy and Paris. In Normandy, the band will provide the music for one of the year’s most significant observances of D-Day (June 6, 1944): the commemoration and wreath laying at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial, which overlooks historic Omaha Beach.
The City of Fairfax Band Association (CFBA) is the focus of a recent taping of the “Café Latino” program on Comcast Channel 28 in Reston. The program features a performance by the Fairfax Saxophone Quartet, a unit of the CFBA. Also appearing are CFBA Music Director Robert Pouliot and Fairfax Council member Eleanor Schmidt, who also sits on the CFBA board.
