Volunteers needed for Fall Concert & Band-O-Rama

The Fall Band Concert will be held at 3 p.m., this Sunday, October 23, in the main gymnasium at RMHS.  As part of this event that features the jazz bands, all choral groups and orchestra and string ensembles, we also offer cheesecake samples for the upcoming fund-raiser and introduce other fund-raisers as well.  Specifically, Manna Gift Cards will be on display and the Choral Boosters are offering a Greeting Card box offer that will benefit either Choral or Music boosters – you will be able to indicate for which group the money for your purchase should be allocated.  A flyer on this fund-raiser is attached HERE.

Band-O-Rama will be held at 7:30 p.m., next Wednesday, October 26, also in the main gymnasium at RMHS.  This concert features all music and routines performed during the 2016 Marching Mustangs Season.  It is recorded and commemorative CDs are burned and ordered/sold that night, too.  Cheesecake samples for fund-raising are offered again here, too – this group sure likes cheesecake!

There are LOTS of opportunities to volunteer here, so please consider helping out where you can, especially if you do not have a student performing at one of the concerts so that parents of student-performers can come and enjoy the concert.

Renegade Invitational MusicFest at Sandwich High School is this Sunday, Oct. 16, and the Marching Mustangs need your help!

The Marching Mustangs’ final competition of the 2016 season is the Renegade Invitational MusicFest and will be held from 1:50 to 8 p.m., Sunday, October 16, at Sandwich High School. Our performance time is set for 6:15 p.m. on the football field.

Band members need to arrive at the RMHS Band Room by 1:15 p.m. that afternoon, and we need LOTS of help and support to make this entire day a great success from beginning to end.  From loading and unloading the larger instruments onto the buses to chaperoning, filming the competitive performance, and providing water bottles for the band, there are all kinds of ways to help out, have a great time and get to know other Booster parents.  Many families often drive ahead to the school and cheer on the Marching Mustangs to victory, too!

If you have not had a chance to volunteer this year yet, please check out the volunteer slots below and sign up for whatever you are available to do before our marching season comes to a close.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support and all you do for the Marching Mustangs!
