Dear Parents and Wind
The Rocky River High
School Wind Ensemble will be performing at the OMEA District VII Adjudicated
Event on Friday, March 9, 2018. The event will take place at Mentor High
School in the Performing Arts Center. All parents and friends are not
only invited, but encouraged to attend and be part of the audience. Bands
and choruses from throughout northeast Ohio will be playing and singing as part
of this event. Each group will be appraised and graded by a panel of
three stage judges and one sight-reading judge. Formal critiques are made
and ratings are given.
The Wind Ensemble will perform in the Mentor PAC at 9:10 PM on 3/19. [Note the Concert Band performs at 5:00 PM in the Mentor PAC]. Please leave ample time to arrive and be seated as OMEA regulations do not allow for entry to the performance hall once a group’s stage time has started. Also, please do not bring cameras [still or video], or any other type of recording device as these items are forbidden by OMEA Rules. All cell phones must be silenced or turned off as well; and, of course, no cell phone pictures or recordings are allowed either. Failure to comply with the items in this paragraph could result in disqualification for RRCS entries. Disqualifications were levied against area schools in 2016 & 2017 so please heed this warning.
Below is the complete
itinerary for the district adjudicated performance. If you have any
questions, please call or email Mr. Taylor (356-6800 ext 6822). Taylor.firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your continued support of music education
at Rocky River High School.
