Another great year of music making is in the books, and so much happened during the 2016-2017 school year! Here is a recap of the highlights from this past school year:

  • Blake Depinet was accepted and performed in the 2017 Rose Parade with the Bands Of America Honors Band.
  • The Jacket Company placed 3rd in the International Competition of High School A Cappella Great Lakes Quarterfinals in Centerville (OH), and moved on the the Semifinals to compete against schools from Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
  • The Junior High Band performed in the 2017 Ohio Music Education Association District 2 Large Group Adjudicated Events, and received an “Excellent” rating.
  • Finally, Dylan Weinandy was accepted into the All-Ohio State Fair Band, and he will be performing at the Ohio State Fair & Expo Center for fairgoers this summer.

Thank you to all of the students involved in the Music Department here at New Riegel Schools! Even though we are a small school system with a small Music Department, our students are accomplishing big things, and we could not be more proud of them!

A BIG THANK YOU to our 2017 Graduating Seniors: Brad Eddington, Drew Werling, Rachael Rolsten, Madison LaCourse, Tim Lucius, Kady Elchert, Gidge Elchert, and Emily Hohman. You have done so much for the Music Department and you will be greatly missed.

Thank you to the New Riegel Administration, Staff, and Community for your continued support. There will be events and updates throughout the summer, so check the Music Department website and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the most updated schedule. Have a great summer!
