RMS Band at UW!

On Monday, February 9th, the Reeves Middle School Band performed in Meany Hall at the University of Washington as part of the Pacific Northwest Music Festival.  The band was adjudicated and critiqued by a few of the preeminent band directors in the country: Frank Battisti, Gary Green, & Craig Kirchhoff.  It is quite an honor as numerous bands are not accepted and this is probably the only event known nationally where a middle school band is able to get this level of assessment from such renowned band directors. 
Students not only learned numerous concert band techniques & concepts but also learned similar things in popular music at the Experience Music Project museum in Seattle. In addition, three Reeves students were selected to perform with the University of Washington Symphonic Band in concert and students watched some excellent performances by other high school and college ensembles performing that day.  It is amazing how much we talk about attending college in schools and so many of our students have not even been to one.  It is our hopes that by performing at and seeing what learning looks like at the college level that our students have a better idea of setting their educational goals and motivation to attain them. 
We would like to thank our Reeves staff for the opportunity to attend and our parents for their chaperone help. Mr. Grostick
