ARTS: Ridge View High School Wind Ensemble
The RVHS Wind Ensemble will be performing at the Koger Center at the 2021 University of South Carolina Band Clinic & South Carolina Music Educators Association Conference. Being invited to these prestigious events is a tremendous honor and something that we have been working towards for a couple of years now. Given the restrictions in audience numbers, the Koger Center will be live streaming our performance starting at 12:30pm on February 13. We will be premiering a brand new piece in honor of RVHS student Samuel Randazzo, who passed away last March. I hope you will join us from the comfort of your homes and our students showcase their talents for the entire world.
