The purpose of the RMHS Band Parent's Organization is to provide financial and physical support as well as foster an improved educational environment to the instrumental music program involving RMHS students that participate in Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, Jazz Combo, Color Guard and any other group directly tied to the music department at the high school.
On Wednesday evening, Nov 27, in the field house, band members will be challenged with a "drill-down" which is a lot of fun to watch. Drill down will be followed by a performance for the parents.
