RCMS Band Members Chosen for District Honor Band

Recently members of the RCMS 7th and 8th Grade bands performed as selected members of the 2020 District 11 KMEA Middle School Honors Band Program.  These students competed with over 400 students from across the district during auditions for the group in January.  Honor Band members spent two days of intensive rehearsal with guest conductors Ashley Bell, Associate Director of Bands at Grayson County High School and Dr. Amy Acklin, Associate Director of Bands and Professor of Music at the University of Louisville.  The event culminated with a concert given Friday March 6th at the Danville High School Center for the Performing Arts.  RCMS students include (from L-R) Leah Whitworth, Loareta Krebs, Marcos Benge, Gabriel Clouse, and Joseph Elam.
