RSMS Choral Music

Hello Choir Folk!

I hope that you've had a great summer! Since you're here on the site, I assume that you are ready to get rolling. Welcome back to all returning choir members, and welcome to new choir members! I'm exited to have ALL of you in choir!

I will communicate most information through Canvas and I encourage you to check there frequently. Rehearsal aids, pictures and videos, links to information about our songs, etc., as well as important class announcements will be there, so be sure you stay in-the-know.

I am looking forward to making great music with all of you talented folks. Enjoy your first days of school!

There will be a $3 admission fee to all 7th/8th band and vocal concerts this year for adults.

100% of your admission price for these concerts goes directly to support our music department. Roland-Story uses the revenues from concert admissions to purchase instruments and sheet music; to pay fees for solo contest, honor choirs and honor bands; to tune the pianos; and to hire clinicians and collaborative artists. Thank you for supporting our students in the musical arts!

For my students

“In the end, the arts make three things possible. First, they develop the mind by giving it opportunities to learn to think in special ways. Second, they make communication possible on matters that will not take the impress of logically constructed language. Poetry, after all, was invented to say what prose can never say. Third, the arts are places and spaces where one can enrich one's life. Such outcomes are not educationally trivial. When taken seriously, the arts have much to teach educators: they could provide the models needed to create schools that genuinely educate.”

Elliot Eisner, Professor of Art & Education, Stanford University
