Congratulations to our Hall of Fame Class of 2022

Erin Brown

Erin Brown has been consistently visible during her career as a performer with University High School and The Company Winter Guards, and an adult staff member of the FFCC and WGI. Erin was the Director for Freedom High School for 10 years, leading them to win multiple World Championships at WGI. Aside from her teaching, Erin’s voice has always been one of reason and for the betterment of all performers. Her role as one of those chosen to speak on behalf of her fellow board members and instructional communities have made Erin one of the most influential voices within the programs that she has participated with.

Since her performing endeavors, Erin’s continuously open and approachable demeanor and unfailing respect for peers, teachers, coaches, and family has always reflected her steadfast dedication to promoting goals that are consistent with the mission statements of the FFCC, WGI, as well as the Orange County school district in which she serves as a professional educator today.

Please congratulate Ms. Erin Brown! We are all appreciative of everything you have done for the performers, instructors, and spectators of the FFCC

Jeremy Lee

Jeremy has taught and developed successful ensembles in a wide range of divisions within the FFCC. His current ensemble, Santa Fe High School, is a defending Gold Medalist in the Concert

Division. Earlier in his career Jeremy brought Santa Fe similar success as a marching ensemble and then he ventured into the Independent Divisions of competition when he founded and

directed Unity Percussion to multiple WGI medals during the life of that ensemble.

Though Jeremy’s instructional success is clear, he has also been a leader within the FFCC on the development and implementation of many philosophical changes that have benefited the percussion ensembles we have today. These changes have been the catalyst for the exponential growth we have seen in participation within our indoor percussion divisions.

Congratulations again to Jeremy Lee!

2023 Hall of Fame Nominations

The FFCC Board of Directors come to you seeking nominations for induction into the FFCC Hall of Fame for the 2023 Season.

To remind you what we are looking for in Hall of Fame inductees, it is those builders of strong character, dedication to the education of our young performers, contribution to our organization, and advancing the activity through their outstanding involvement and achievement in performing, teaching, or administration. These should be people who represent the heart and ideas that the FFCC was built upon. We do not distinguish specific criteria because we firmly believe that it is the coming together of all of our thoughts that make us the dynamic community we have become. There is also not a limit to the number of recipients, so we can take as many as you feel qualify or we can have none.

The process to enter the Hall of fame is as follows:

  1. Any FFCC member in good standing may submit an individual nomination for selection to the FFCC Hall of Fame.
  2. The nominating member is responsible for submitting a letter of nomination and two letters of support to the chairperson of the Hall of Fame Selection Committee.
  3. All completed nominations will be forwarded for voting.
