Concert Success!

What an outstanding Fall Concert and reception! The students' hard work paid off and they performed beautifully.  Our soloists: Josh Davis; Noah Frank; Brandon Yang, Vincent Phan, and; Emme McKumiskey did wonderful work. 

Many thanks and much appreciation to all of the families and orchestra officers who helped by: setting up, cleaning up and supplementing food where needed.  Sepcial thanks to Susan Brown for organizing all of our volunteers!

An Evening at the ASO

A large contingent of RHS Orchestra students and chaperones attended an ASO performance last Thursday.  We dined at Ted's Montana Grill and took in the beautiful sounds of the symphony.  We hope you will consider joining us in the Spring when we go again!  Please click the link below, or copy and paste into your browser, to see some of the highlights.


How Can You Help In Other Ways?

Immediate Needs:
We need everyone to either sign up for the RHS Orchestra Booster Club or donate what they can in order to meet our goal for the year.  Every penny counts! Due to funds already collected, we were able to purchase extra goodies for the reception.

Ms. White is in desperate need of TISSUES and HAND SANITIZER.  Thank you!
