“Pick up your instruments and Maestro, strike up the BAND! Let’s Celebrate!”

Raymond Cree Middle School is turning the BIG 5-0 in 2018 and we want you to be part of this celebration!

The RCMS Instrumental Program wants to celebrate by raising $50,000+ in the next two years to purchase much needed brand new instruments!  Some of our instruments have been around since the inception of the school and we need your help to make it through the next 50 years!  The goal is to have these new instruments already in students’ hands for the 50th year!

We are also looking to raise an additional $5,000 to commission a brand new piece of music to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the RCMS and we plan on having it premiered in the 50th year of the school!  We also will plan on having a performance of the work where any instrumental program alumni from the previous 50 years can join in on the fun to perform the piece in a special alumni performance!

Join us as we turn 50 by contributing at one of these levels!

$10,000+ | Maestro
$5,000-$9,999 | Golden Commissioner
$2,500-$4,999 | Ruby Firebird
$1,000-$2,499 | Crystal Toccata
$500-$999 | Onyx Sonata
$50-$499 | Performer
