The Symphonic Band, the Honors Wind Ensemble, & the Color Guard are all performing at the Olney & Noble Memorial Day Ceremonies on Monday, May 28th, 2018. The combined band will support the Olney ceremony, while a bugler will support the Noble ceremony.
Here are the details regarding the Olney Memorial Day Ceremony:
The VFW is hosting the Memorial Day Ceremony at Haven Hill Cemetery (just north of the City Park). Drum majors Ethan Steber & Natalie Doan are directing. We meet in the RCHS rehearsal hall before traveling to the cemetery.
The uniform is department shirts & shorts, with tennis shoes (no sandals or boots!). Students will also need flip folders, lyres, and instruments.
The times are as follows:
10:00 AM: Call-time at RCHS
10:30 AM: Load bus and depart for Haven Hill Cemetery
11:00 AM: Ceremony begins
I anticipate the ceremony won't last longer than an hour, which will put the band back at the school around 12-12:30 PM.
The band is performing the following songs:
Star Spangled Banner
Water is provided by the VFW for the event.
I know that this falls on Memorial Day weekend, falls during the summer, and many families will be out of town. That being said, we need as many RCHS Bands members to this performance as possible. All total, the combined Honors Wind Ensemble & Symphonic Band is around 50 students during the 4th term. We want to support the cities of Olney & Noble (and our veterans) that support us. Students, please make every effort to be at this event. It means a lot to this community.
Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
