Support Your Marching Mustangs

flag_purpleThere are two great opportunities to see the Marching Mustangs in action this weekend. The first is tomorrow night at the home football game. This also happens to be junior high band night, so you’ll get to see and hear the future Mustang musicians.

The other opportunity is at the Knight of Champions Marching Band Competition at Prospect High School. The Marching Mustangs perform their show, Desert Winds, at 5:45. Many of the top area marching bands will be in attendance putting on terrific shows at the height of their seasons. Click the link for more specific details about the day: Knight of Champions

Volunteers for both events are always welcome and encouraged. If you are interested in helping, check the Volunteer page and sign up.

Busy Marching Mustang weekend ahead with many opportunities to volunteer

After a quiet weekend for the Marching Mustangs, our activity ramps up again this week with Junior High Band Night this Friday night, September 30, along with a football game against Prospect High School.  Then our third marching competition at Prospect High School follows the next day, Saturday, October 1.

The following week, the RMHS Music Boosters have been invited by the Athletic Boosters to join them and the other Booster organizations at the school to collect/donate food for the Homecoming Pep Rally Picnic on Wednesday, October 5.  Please consider donating food there and help the Music Boosters make a great showing with the generous spirit that we always manage to produce.

Here are links for all three volunteering opportunities:

sport_footballNo rest for the Marching Mustangs! Many students & parents participated in the awesome Fall Concert this past Sunday (orchestra videos are now on the RMHS Music Booster YouTube page). Tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. is the annual Band-O-Rama for the Marching Mustangs. We hope you will be in attendance for this fun recap of the marching season.

This Saturday, November 1, RMHS will be hosting a playoff football game which means the boosters will be out in force baking and serving cookies and helping with the Marching Mustangs. Please visit the Volunteer page and sign up to help. Thanks.


flag_purpleFresh off of their second place finishes at Grayslake Marching Band Competition and the Chicagoland Marching Band Festival, the award-winning RMHS Marching Mustangs will host their annual Junior High Band Night on Thursday, October 2 at the home football game (Thursday is correct!). The following Sunday, October 5, the band travels to Chicago for the St. Rita Marching Band Festival. The students love an enthusiastic crowd. The show is very exciting and full of pageantry, musicianship, and karate-ography. Don’t miss your chance to see the students perform this awesome show! If you available, the boosters could also use some help at these events. Please visit the Volunteer page and scroll down to the events list to sign up.
