Welcome to the RCHS Band and Chorus Site!

Five elective course offerings are available for the developing musician. These include; Marching Band, Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band and Chorus. To be eligible to take an instrumental class a prerequisite of successfully completing 8th grade band must be met. Because of a higher degree of skill development, auditions are required for Wind Ensemble and Jazz Band. All of these courses encompass musical styles ranging from Grade III to Grade VI levels. The prerequisite for Chorus is the ability to carry a tune and match pitches. 

Participants enjoy showcasing their talent in local concerts, and regional music festivals, as well as in 3 concerts during the school year. Students may have additional opportunities to travel for enrichment and/or competitive activities.
