auction_hammer_gavelOver the past few months we got through Jazz in the Meadows and saw 140 students get to New York City to play Carnegie Hall. Thank you to all the volunteers that made this happen. As we move into the last part of the school year we still have things to get done.

We will be taking nominations for elected officers for next year’s booster executive committee. Elections will take place at the May meeting. We will also be planning some of the year end activities.

Please join us for the monthly RMHS Music Booster meeting onWednesday April 6th. We meet near the back of the cafeteria in the Faculty Lounge at 7 p.m. as we begin to look forward to planning many of the year end activities.

If you have any questions about boosters please send an email to president@rmhsmusicboosters or reach out to Mr. Buti or Mr. Carroll for additional information. The RMHS Music Boosters work closely with the directors in helping to plan and support such things as band competitions, concerts, trips, camps and Jazz in the Meadows.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

NYC Trip Day 3

Today’s activities began with fantastic Band, Choir, Color Guard, and Orchestra workshops at Broadway Classroom in Manhattan. Students got to rehearse with Broadway directors, musicians, and actors who also shared stories about musical life in NYC and gave advice on being a professional musician. After the workshops, we spent the time exploring the area in and around Times Square. We then had a wonderful dinner at the Crossroads Restaurant at the beautiful Marriott Marquis and then saw the hilarious and amazing musical Something Rotten.


NYC Trip Day 2

After a long bus ride, we arrived at Penn State University early Tuesday morning to have band, choir & orchestra clinics with their esteemed faculty. It was a very productive and worthwhile experience in preparation for Thursday’s big concert. Following lunch, we made our way to NYC and got to experience the city at the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Center). We had some amazing views of Central Park and Manhattan. Check out some of the pics below:

The Journey Begins – NYC Trip Day 1

Students began arriving as early as 10:30 a.m. for band, choir, and orchestra rehearsals. Suitcases, bags, cases, etc. littered the halls and music classrooms in anticipation. At 3:30 p.m., the music department presented their Farewell Concert in the gym which featured music that will be performed at Carnegie Hall. Following the concert, we loaded the buses and were off!
