HANNIBAL, Mo. — The Hannibal Concert Association’s third concert of its 2023-2024 concert season is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 15, with the award-winning Fountain City Brass Band in the Roland Fine Arts Center’s Parker Theater on the campus of Hannibal-LaGrange University. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Fountain City Brass Band is a 30-piece brass and percussion ensemble from Kansas City. They are the current North American brass band champions. FCBB has won the North American Brass Band Championships, U.S. Open Brass Band Championships and became the first American band ever, and the first non-UK band in more than 50 years, to win a major brass band competition on UK soil at the Scottish Open Brass Band Championships.

This will be the third time Fountain City Brass Band has performed in Hannibal in recent years. The group has presented concerts during the 2017-18 concert season and most recently during the 2021-22 season. The performance is being funded in part by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency, through a Community Touring grant.
