The holidays are here and the RMHS Music Boosters have several ways for you to help make our holiday concerts extra special and at basketball games to help raise funds for our many programs that support the orchestras and bands at RMHS.
The Holiday Band Concert is this Thursday, December 8, and Pep Band season begins the next night, Friday, December 9, with both the Purple and Gold bands playing for the Girls’ and Boys’ Varsity Basketball Games as the Mustangs take on Wheeling.
Next week follows with the Holiday Orchestra & Choir Concert on Tuesday, December 13, and then another set of basketball games vs. Prospect on Friday night, December 16.
Here are the links to each event for your convenience:

We still have 10 positions to fill for Sunday’s Fall Concert, so as you’re watching the Cubs hopefully make history tonight, please consider helping us out at tomorrow’s 3 p.m. concert in the main gymnasium.

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!

There 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.
Marching band camp is next week August 1 – 5, and we are in need of volunteers to help with uniform fittings and serve dinner after they’ve been practicing all day.

On Friday, August 5, there’s a picnic for the families of ALL MUSIC STUDENTS—not just the marching band, so pass the word! After the picnic, stay to watch the first public performance of this year’s marching competition piece. We’re using signupgenius.com not only to track volunteers, but also to get an idea of how many people will attend the picnic. Whether you want to volunteer or just socialize, please visit the Volunteer page, scroll down to the Summer Band Camp Picnic entry, and click the sign-up button or click this link: Summer Band Camp Picnic
We are in need of 6 people to assist uniform coordinators Meg Sioui and Amy Carroll inventory all of the RMHS Music Uniforms on Thursday, June 16 from 9 a.m. to noon. It’s a pretty big undertaking and many hands make light work. If you’re available, please consider signing up on the Volunteer Page or click this link: Uniform Inventory
Tonight at 7:30 p.m, the 2015-16 RMHS Orchestras will perform in concert for the final time. It will be a wonderful celebration of the student’s achievements and talents. We hope you will be in attendance.
This Saturday, the Marching Mustangs will perform in the annual Rolling Meadows Memorial Day parade and ceremony. Please show your Mustang spirit and cheer on the students along the parade route. This will be the final performance for the senior band students!
Both of these events are still in need of volunteers. If you can help, no matter how much, please consider donating your time to support these worthy groups. Go to the Volunteer page, scroll to the event list and select the button to volunteer. You can also click one of these links:
