Welcome to the 2017-18 Marching Mustangs Music Boosters Web Page!

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year
& the RMHS  Marching Mustangs Music Boosters Web Page!

We extend a warm welcome to all of our incoming freshman families joining us for the first time as the 2017 marching season begins – we look forward to getting to know you and the great times we will share together with the Marching Mustangs.

The RMHS Music Boosters were chartered to support the marching band, orchestra, color guard, and all instrumentalist students and directors at Rolling Meadows High School, and our primary way of communicating with you is through posts on this page.  Whether it is information on upcoming performances, competitions, football games or ways to volunteer when help is needed, this is where you will find the best ways to get involved and support RMHS’s amazing music program.

We also hope that by now you and your family have heard about and been invited to our Tail Gate Party, which will be held from 7 to 9 p.m., this Thursday, June 29 in front of RMHS.  We launched this party last year on a whim and had such a great time at it that repeating it again this year was a given.  So drop your student off in the back of the school at 6:30 and then drive around and park in the front to meet fellow Music Boosters, enjoy some great food on us, and most importantly see and hear the newly minted 2017 Marching Mustangs practice and perform “Salute to America” as they march around the parking lot in preparation for the upcoming Fourth of July parades in Arlington Heights and Rolling Meadows next week.

You can stop by any time between 7 and 9 as the Marching Mustangs will play several times as they perfect their parade performance.  Freshman parents are often amazed at how much has been accomplished in these 6 short rehearsals.

If you have any questions, please contact us at volunteers@rmhsmusicboosters.com and we will be happy to help you out.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to connect with old friends while making many new ones, too.

See you Thursday night!
