Fresh off of their second place finishes at Grayslake Marching Band Competition and the Chicagoland Marching Band Festival, the award-winning RMHS Marching Mustangs will host their annual Junior High Band Night on Thursday, October 2 at the home football game (Thursday is correct!). The following Sunday, October 5, the band travels to Chicago for the St. Rita Marching Band Festival. The students love an enthusiastic crowd. The show is very exciting and full of pageantry, musicianship, and karate-ography. Don’t miss your chance to see the students perform this awesome show! If you available, the boosters could also use some help at these events. Please visit the Volunteer page and scroll down to the events list to sign up.
