luggage_brown_tagA tourist lost in New York City asks a bystander, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” The bystander responds “Practice, Practice, Practice!” While it still is a classic joke, you can now change the punch line to: “Come with the RMHS Music Department on their 2016 Spring Trip!

Yes, you read that right. The RMHS Music Department 2016 Spring Break Trip will be to New York City where, among other things, we will PERFORM at the legendary CARNEGIE HALL! Built in 1891, it’s history of performances is unrivaled. I urge you to see for yourself, by visiting their website: Carnegie Hall

More details of the trip are forthcoming, but in the meantime, if you would like to see some of the things that we will be doing, please enjoy this short video:

JITM 30 years logoIt is with sincere appreciation that I thank everyone for making this 30th anniversary celebration of Jazz in the Meadows celebration a success. Some say it takes a village to get things done but this week it took friends, family and a caring community with deep appreciation for music and our students to pull off a very successful program.

So many of you helped to make this day successful and we continue to receive very positive feedback on this year’s 30th Anniversary celebration. I want to thank everyone one who stepped up and helped out. No matter how big or how small, how little or how long of a time you spent lending a hand this year, your contribution to the success of our program is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Mat Krawczyk
RMHS Music Boosters President
