Rappahannock County High School Band

"Perform, not to not make mistakes, but to make music." -Jason Guira

Who Are We?

The Rappahannock County High School Band is a group of some of the most musically skilled and talented individuals in the state. We strive for excellence in all aspects, from musical aptitude to performance. Classical, rock, concert, jazz and funk are just a few of the many genres and styles of music we explore. While we may be small in size, we leave a large footprint, often creating memorable marching shows, spectacular concerts, or inspiring musical service projects. Our musicians create beautiful and powerful music through passion, hard work, and an over all love of the musical arts.




"Both ensembles presented programs of musical diversity and dexterity much to the enjoyment of the audience. "

-Col. John R. Bourgeois, director emeritus, U.S. Marine Band

Ninon Kirchman Proves her Art

Esteemed RCHS Junior Ninon Kirchman earned 7th chair Trumpet in the All-Virginia Symphonic Band and 10th chair in the state. Ninon traveled to Richmond April 4-6th for two days of rehearsals concluding in an incredible performance at the Dominion Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Ninon earned her spot in the all state ensemble by first earning 1st chair at the District level.

An All-State ensemble is not an entirely new experience for Ninon as this is her second time making it to the state level, having made 25th chair in the state last year as a Sophomore. Ninon is the first student to make an All Virginia Ensemble in the known history of RCHS. Ninon continues to prove her art, her discipline, and talent time and time again. The Panther Band and her Director could not be more proud of Ninon and her accomplishments, she has earned it!
