MRHS Music Calendar


Our Music Foundation provides a great deal of support to the amazing Directors who teach our talented students and provides opportunities for the students to earn money that is applied to their account for the spring trip. In order to fill in the monetary gaps, the Music Foundation holds a number of fundraisers, but they can't happen without the help of our music community.
