Spring Band Concert Pictures & Videos

I’ve posted the pictures and videos that I took last night at the Spring Band Concert. (If you’re subscribed to the RMHS Music Boosters YouTube channel, you already know that.) If you’d like a copy of any of the pictures, you can download them from SkyDrive. If you’d like a copy of any of the videos, just let me know. I also have a video of the seniors receiving their gift bags that I haven’t posted to YouTube that you’re welcome to have. If anyone else has some pictures or videos they’d like to post, please let me know and we’ll make it happen.

All of the videos are on the RMHS Music Boosters YouTube channel. I’ve included the video of To Tame the Perilous Skies below.
