'Monroeville' to Perform with Fairmont Orchestras for Night of Bluegrass

On Wednesday September 14, the award-winning bluegrass group, "Monroeville," will be headlining a bluegrass-inspired evening of music at Fairmont High School.

They will be performing bluegrass classics with each of our four High School Orchestras. They will also be performing music from an upcoming album that featured string players from the Juilliard School.

Footage from one of those songs being performed with our Fairmont Symphony will be used for an upcoming video that we are all hoping becomes a big hit for them.

Tickets for this special event are $10 for reserved seating and are available at, or by calling the Kettering Music Department Box Office at 499-2647.

Please help us pack the place for this great night of music and our video shoot. Show time is 7 p.m. You will not be disappointed!
