For Musicians Only Big Band Open Rehearsal
For Musicians Only is a 17-piece ensemble comprised of local adult musicians who enthusiastically rehearse big band music together at bi-monthly closed sessions primarily for their own enjoyment.
Basically a sight-reading/rehearsal band, FMO enjoys playing the challenging arrangements recorded by the big bands of the 50’s and beyond. At their closed rehearsal sessions they endeavor to keep their instrumental and reading chops in shape by playing the music honoring the heritage of these jazz greats.
You are invited to join us in the atrium of the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City for a presentation of some of this classic music that ranges from jazz ballads to blues based straight-ahead jazz.
