We continue our Summer Concert Series with the Fillmore Philharmonic Bras. The FPB is a member of the Fillmore Wind Program, a Cincinnati Based non-profit organization formed in 2010 with the mission of promoting wind music in the Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana tri-state area. The Fillmore Wind Program, one of the region's premier volunteer wind programs, has four member bands – The Fillmore Philharmonic Brass, The Fillmore Wind Band, the Fillmore Chamber Winds, and the Ohio Valley Big Band. The Fillmore Wind Program is the official namesake of March King and Cincinnati native Henry Fillmore.
The FPB was founded in 2014 by Ron Lutterbie, a local Cincinnati musician and band manager. Mr. Lutterbie is the Executive Director of the Fillmore Wind Program, board member and Director of Finance for the North American Brass Band Association, Manager of the Ohio Valley Big Band, and Vice President at Fifth Third Bank. He plays French Horn, Tenor Horn, and Trumpet.
This concert will take place in Spring Grove's Rose Garden gazebo.
