Hello Orchestra Families!

Proud and privileged truly do not begin to describe what I feel when I am conducting and teaching.  The Winter Concert was a magical mix of passion, dedication and teamwork. The middle school students and their families left whispering of what is to come as they transition to RHS next year and showed they too are ready and willing.

A special thank you to Becky Nelson, Robin Jenkins and the other RHS Booster Club members who helped to set up the reserved seats, move folks around who needed a seat.  Thank you to Stephanie Grahl and team for their booster club recruiting efforts in the lobby. If you have not yet joined, please consider donating any amount with which you are comfortable. In order to run our programs, we need reliable and consistent funding.

Please see below for concert 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!
