Rio Band Families,
- Optional band picture orders are due no later than this Thursday at lunch. Please make sure to fill out the forms EXACTLY as indicated in my earlier email.
- We had two guest artists join us last week, with amazing results. Kudos to bassists Sierra Contreras and Maddy Hill, who were called into service to play along with Bria Skonberg. They did a fantastic job! Duncan McElman, Nick Augusta and Sean Nelson created impromptu musical magic while sitting in with the Matt Wilson Christmas Tree-O when they visited Rio. Duncan and Sean then sat in with the group during their show at Mondavi Center. What an experience. Photos of the Mondavi show are in our dropbox- https://www.dropbox.com/sh/x7qyuf7m0g5subs/AAAmLWcgV3mRISQQ0iZ9j-fUa
- Freshman (wow!) Natalie Kowalski has been selected for the CMEA Capitol Section Honor Band. She was in the top five flutes in the entire region. Way to go Natalie!
- This Friday, Dr. Ronald Carter will join us in the band room from 3 to 6-ish PM, to provide a clinic for our AM Jazz Ensemble. Rio students and families are welcome to observe.
