Dear Parents and
Concert Band Members,
The Rocky River High
School Concert Band 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 (PAC). 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 Concert Band will perform in the Mentor PACat 5:00 PM on 3/19. [Note the Wind Ensemble performs at 9:10 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 venue 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 all 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 email Mr. Komperda Komperda.Michael@rrcs.org. Thank you for your continued support of music
education at Rocky River High School.
