Wilmot Contest Canceled

The Wilmot marching band contest this Sunday (Sep 19) has been canceled. See Mr. Buti’s announcement below.

Dear MM students and parents,

As you are probably aware, the Wilmot Contest scheduled for 9/19 was canceled. As a result, the Marching Mustangs lose out on rehearsal time
and a judged performance opportunity. The typical schedule for the Wilmot Contest day is 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. With all that in mind, we don’t want to lose out and fall behind on developing the show–as we still are preparing for the Wheeling Contest on 9/25 next weekend.

Therefore, we are going to shorten the day (9/19) substantially and hold a short mini-camp from 1:00-3:00 p.m. with a FREE OPEN PERFORMANCE for friends and family at 3:15 p.m.!!

Our goal is to finish learning the show and then debut it for our friends and family!!

New Music Boosters Domain

At the last Music Boosters meeting, we decided to change the domain name to better reflect what we do. Our new domain name is rmhsmusicboosters.com. The old domain will be active for at least another year, so you don’t need to print new business cards and buy new bumper stickers just yet. (I’ve already updated the Google calendar, so if you added our calendar to yours, you’ll have to do it again.)

Update: @rmhsmusicboosters.com e-mail addresses are now active.

Soon, we’ll also add a Director’s page to be updated by Mr. Buti and an Orchestra page to be updated by Mr. Stewart.

Welcome Back!

Hi RMHS Music Parents,
Welcome! It’s hard to believe that Summer has come and gone already which means the Music Boosters are gearing up for another exciting school year of music.

This is my sixth year that I’ve been involved with the Music Boosters and my second term as President. I am very fortunate again to have a tremendous Executive Committee where all positions are filled on a volunteer basis. Some are returning members and others are new parents who have stepped up to help out.  I can’t do it all on my own and it takes many people to help run a great organization like the RMHS Music Boosters.
