Kudos to the the RPHS Wind Ensemble on their outstanding performance Thursday 4/18 at the 47th Annual Western Michigan University Spring Conference on Wind and Percussion Music. The group had the opportunity to work with composer Dana Wilson (photo below) and perform on the stage of Miller Auditorium (photo above).

Guest Conductor

According to R-P director, Mr. Hodson, the band played a wonderful, diverse, and demanding program that included works by Dana Wilson, John Mackey, Frank Ticheli, Michael Markowski, Percy Grainger, and Leonard Bernstein . . . and they were STELLAR!!!!!!!

Mr. Hodson had this to say about our wind ensemble’s performance, “I don’t think it’s possible for me to be any more proud of these fine students than I am right now as I reflect on; their work leading up to this event, their behavior on the 2 days of this trip, and their amazing performance! This truly has been one of the finest experiences in the storied history of the RPHS Bands.  I am humbled and honored to be a part of this program.”
