All-Call for Volunteers (Students & Parents)!

posted Nov 4, 2010, 4:12 PM by Phil Barnes

Good evening,


Once again RHS is hosting the MCPS Honors Auditions. For two nights, we will open our doors to almost 1000 students who are vying for a spot in one of the All-County Bands and Orchestras.


The audition dates are Tuesday, November 9th and Tuesday, November 16th.


We are in desperate need of help from both students and parents in order to make these auditions work. I need about 40 students each night in order to fully staff the spaces that will be used for the auditions. Each night is split into 3 shifts:


4:00pm-5:30pm (setting up rooms)


7:30pm-10:00pm (usually the students are out of here by 9:30)


Students can work as many shifts as they want, and will receive SSL hours for all time worked! At the moment, I only have about 10-15 students each if you (or your child) can help please see me ASAP! Dependable students who are not part of the Music Department are also welcome to help!


Additionally, we need some parent help with supervision and a bake sale, which we will use as a fundraiser. Susan Townsend-Gray, our FORM president, has prepared a letter and sign-up sheet for parents for both the auditions as well as next month's Winter Concerts. You can download a copy of her letter here.


Thank you for your support of the Music Department!
