Big congratulations to the RMS Brass Choir for their performance at the Alabama Music Educators Conference last Friday, January 20th! These amazing students shocked the crowds with their ability to play music way beyond their years - and do so with class and maturity. We are all SO proud of you, Allison, Edie, Emma, Houston, Miles, and Rachel!
For students interested in auditioning for the Alabama All-State Band, recordings of the audition etudes are now available at this link:
On Friday night, September 30th, the Southside High School Football Field will be packed with band kids! This is a special opportunity for your middle schooler to experience being a member of The PRIDE of Southside Marching Band for a night. RMS Band students will stand and play on the field with the marching band for their pre-game show and sit in the stands with them the whole game. This is such a fun night, so please make plans to be there!
Participating students, grades 6-8 will need to attend a brief rehearsal, Thursday, September 29th, 4:45 - 5:30PM at the SHS Band Practice Field. On Friday, they will need to report with instrument to the SHS Auditorium. Dress for the event is RMS Band T Shirt and jeans.
