Pre-UIL Concert 03/28/19

All family and friends are invited to our Pre-UIL Concert on Thursday, March 28th. We will be starting off the concert with the Concert Band at 7:00 PM! Ensemble directors will communicate call-times for each band.

This concert is designed to imitate that of the UIL performance and will be different from our other concerts. There will NOT be announcements made for upcoming events, recognition of awards/soloists or descriptions of the music being performed. The announcer will only introduce the band, director and titles/composers of the pieces being played. Programs handed at the door will also be very brief in detail.

Please understand that we have HIRED two guest judges to attend and provide feedback to our students. These judges will be sitting in the balcony of the auditorium and will be making comments (into digital recorders) during the ENTIRE performance. Please DO NOT be alarmed. Anyone attending the concert must sit in the lower floor.

Our guests judges are:

Brian Merrill – Professor of Music Education at SMU, retired

Gabe Musella – UIL, assistant music director

Beginner Drive 03/30/19

On Saturday, March 30th, we will be having our second Beginner Drive of the year. 5th graders from the RHS cluster will come and try out instruments/sign-up for band. 

We will be needing about 20 students to help with the event from 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Anyone trying out for leadership is highly recommended to sign up. There will be a sign-up sheet in the front of the band hall for all volunteers. Please wear your show shirt/jeans Service hours will be provided for your time!
