 Welcome to the RHS Band Webpage!!
Rockford School has a long tradition of maintaining a quality band program.  Students in the high school band program have the opportunity to participate in summer marching band, jazz band, percussion ensemble, solo/ensemble contests, large group band contests, and many other small ensembles.  The Rockford Concert Band goes on tour every two years.  
2016-17 All State Band

Penina Boros is a junior clarinet player who participated in the 2016-17 All-State Band, a year-long program. For the final performance on February 18, 2017, she performed at Orchestra Hall at the Minnesota Music Educators Association Conference. Penina was selected as the first chair clarinetist in the Symphonic Band. Penina’s accomplishment was especially impressive since she was selected to All-State as a sophomore last year (students can audition their sophomore and junior years).
RHS Jazz Band

Rockford High School Jazz Band performed at the Bemidji State University Jazz Festival on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
Minnesota Youth Jazz Program

Juniors Joe Dieter and Lila Beck are members of the Minnesota Youth Jazz Program and play in jazz band III; Joe plays trombone and Lila plays alto saxophone. They auditioned for this very competitive program in August 2016 and were fortunate enough to be placed in one of three big bands organized by the Minnesota Youth Jazz Program. It is a real honor that Rockford has two students in one of their ensembles. The pictures above were taken at Famous Dave’s in Uptown on Sunday, December 4, 2016. This was their first public performance of the year. Check out the picture of Joe Dieter on trombone playing a solo! The Minnesota Youth Jazz Program is an audition-only organization made up of jazz students throughout the state of Minnesota. Rehearsals take place weekly in Edina on Wednesday evenings. Congratulations to Lila and Joe!
