Please drive safely!

Dear Finneytown Families,                                                                             August 10, 2019 I am writing to implore you to drive slowly and safely around our students.

2019 Show Writeup for FMPA Newsletter

“From Darkness Into Light” Finneytown’s 2019 marching band show is based on the 2010 show performed by DCI’s Phantom Regiment drum corps entitled “Into the Light.”  The musical material comes from Michael Kamen’s first classical symphony, “The Old Moon in the New Moon’s Arms,” which was first premiered in 2000.  The music was inspired by the Anasazi people, Native Americans whose symbolism included the flutist Kokopelli.
