Congratulations to the RMS Band, who received a Superior rating at the District Band Festival in Chalmette! The Band received the highest possible scores on stage at the Festival, and represented themselves and our school very well. Congratulations Band!
Our District Band Festival (properly titled the District Large Ensemble Assessment) is hosted by our local chapter of the Louisiana Music Educators Association.
Public and Parochial School Bands from the Greater New Orleans Area are invited to perform, and to receive comments and critique from some of the best musicians in Louisiana. Each group performs three selections, and receive scores based on a rubric that covers all facets of musical performance and technique. Bands are then ranked as Superior (highest score), Excellent, Very Good, Fair, or Poor.
The Riverdale Middle School Band received an Overall Superior rating at this year’s LMEA District VI Large Ensemble Assessment, the highest possible score!
