Fairfax High School Hires New Band Director

Patrick Buchroeder Takes Helm for 2018-2019 School Year

Fairfax High School has hired Mr. Patric Buchroeder as Band Director for the upcoming school year. Buchroeder served as Director of Bands and the Fine Arts program coordinator for the Chillicothe City (Ohio) school district for four years, and then entered a graduate program in Wind Conducting at Northwestern University. As the Chillicothe High School band director, he also supported and co-taught at the feeder elementary and middle school music programs.

“FHS Marching Rebels kicked of the 2018 season under the direction of Mr. Patric Buchroeder at the 4th of July parade,” said Andrea Cook, Fairfax Academy Director.  “I was able to see first-hand the strong relationship Mr. Buchroeder was able to build with many of our students at his first practices. I am excited to see the program develop under Mr. Buchroeder’s leadership.”

“During the few short weeks we have spent together, I have been impressed by the level of detail and thought that goes into each of his decisions and how all the pieces fit together to form a vision focused on our amazing students,” said Cook. “We are lucky to have him join the Fairfax community!”
