Choral Program Wins 1st Place & $5,000
The RM Choral Program won Mix107.3’s High School Holiday Choir Competition and $5,000 for our program! This was possible because of YOU…every single student, staff member, parent, and RM friend that took the time to vote online so that we could get more votes than the 39 other schools that participated. The spirit and generosity of the RM community is overwhelming. Here is a link to a recording of the morning show that features our win, interview, and performance of our song. http://www.mix1073.com/choir/. The students will travel to the studio Friday, December 15 to be interviewed and make a professional recording of the song, and will perform a set of music at the Shops at Wisconsin Place Saturday, December 16 from 2-4 PM where we will accept the prize money. Congratulations!
Watch their December 15 live performance on the Jack Diamond Morning Show here: https://www.facebook.com/Mix1073DC/videos/1605412232814826/.
