Tomorrow, the RMHS Symphony Orchestra Strings will be performing at McCormick Place for The Midwest Clinic, International Band & Orchestra Conference. As the rehearsal lab orchestra, the students will get to work with Texas Tech University Professor David Becker in front of a live audience of music educators on orchestra techniques and musicianship. While at the conference, the students will also have the opportunity to watch performances and clinics from all over the world; visit music publishers, vendors, and manufacturers; and talk with university/music school professionals. The full schedule of events can be found at www.midwestclinic.org. The students will be loading the bus at 7:30 AM and return to RMHS at approximately 6:15 PM.

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.
