Tomorrow, the RMHS Symphony Orchestra Strings will be performing at McCormick Place for The Midwest Clinic, International Band & Orchestra Conference. As the rehearsal lab orchestra, the students will get to work with Texas Tech University Professor David Becker in front of a live audience of music educators on orchestra techniques and musicianship. While at the conference, the students will also have the opportunity to watch performances and clinics from all over the world; visit music publishers, vendors, and manufacturers; and talk with university/music school professionals. The full schedule of events can be found at www.midwestclinic.org. The students will be loading the bus at 7:30 AM and return to RMHS at approximately 6:15 PM. This is a very exciting opportunity for the RMHS Orchestras and one the students won’t soon forget. Click the link below to read the full itinerary.

February will be here before we know it, and we want to be prepared for a fantastic and profitable event. Everyone is welcome to join us for an intro meeting and to learn more about the event.
- Not sure what Jazz in the Meadows is yet? We’ll give you brief facts on the largest RMHS Music Boosters fundraiser!
- Wondering what people mean when they say JITM? We’ll help you understand what that means.
- Your student isn’t in Jazz? Funds raised at the Jazz Festival support the Band, Orchestra, Color Guard, and Jazz Band!
- Don’t have a lot of time to volunteer? We have many opportunities before and during the event that only take a few hours at a time. Come learn about them at this meeting.
