Our Band Program
The Ridgefield High School band program offers a variety of ensembles for our students. The RHS Concert Band, Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Percussion Ensemble will have formal campus concerts scheduled for December, January, and May. Co-curricular opportunities within the music department include RHS Football Pep Band, Symphonic Orchestra, student led Jazz Combos, and a Funk Band that performs regularly in Ridgefield.
In an effort to make your calendars easy, we have included a one stop shopping event list specific to band. Visit here for the full RHS Music Department . Some dates are still being finalized and are subject to change.

PAY DUES AND VOLUNTEER
Ridgefield Matters asks for $50 per student in dues which covers nearly all of the small expenses for the year in terms of what we provide the kids. Rehearsal dinners, water for the rehearsal room, senior gifts, banquet decorations, refreshments after concerts, video recordings of concerts, etc. Rather than ask for small donations at various points, it is just easier on all of us to collect it all at once. If your family is not financially able to contribute, please let a member of our executive board know.
This organization and the music program can not function at its best without parental involvement. Please consider getting involved with the program and helping out at one of our many events. It's easy, fun, and many hands make light work.
