RCHS Band ensembles perform in concert at Star Theater
In March 8 issue, Russell County News

It was a great weekend of music and entertainment. They are described as the elite of the Laker Band program and they compose the Russell County Wind Ensemble. They appeared for the first time in concert at the Star Theater this past weekend in Russell Springs.

The program was entitled "Music Around The World" and in addition to the Wind Ensemble, the Middle School Band and the Percussion Ensemble also performed.

The program opened with the Wind Ensemble and a very inspiring presentation of The Star Spangled Banner. This group also performed First Suite In E-Flat, O Magnum Mysterium and The Sinfonians. The Middle School Band performed with their presentation of A Scottish Ballade and the Percussin Ensemble performed with Sizzle, Metric lips and Sonhando em Salvador.

The Russell County Band program consists of approximately 200 students grades 6-12 who participate in beginning band, seventh grade intermediate band, eighth grade advanced band, marching band, concert band, and wind ensemble. Students also have the opportunity to perform in chamber ensembles, percussion ensemble, and pep band.

The marching band is a co-curricular ensemble with an active performance schedule.

The Wind Ensemble is an elite group of high school students selected from the high school and eighth grade ensembles. The ensemble is currently still in its infancy and this is only the second semester that this ensemble has been in existence. The group consists of 30 of the top students in the entire band program.

The Concert Band consists of all Current High School students involved in the band program. This group has consistently earned distinguished ratings at the Kentucky Music Educator's Association (KMEA) concert festival. The ensemble consistently receives invitations to perform at other festivals around the country.

The Marching Band has been a state champion, a state finalist, and a BOA Regional Finalist. The Russell County Percussion Ensemble was a KIVIEA Distinguished Performer in February 2006.

Director Andy Critz states, "the Band Booster Parent Organization enthusiastically supports the Russell County High School Band and without their tremendous efforts and dedication, the band's participation at this event and in many other activities would not be possible." Critz added, "the Band also receives extraordinary support from Principal Darren Gossage and the rest of the administration and faculty at Russell County High School and the Russell County School System, and we are especially appreciative of the support of our school board members and Superntendent Scott Pierce.
