Ridgewood students dominate All-Bergen band auditions.

Congratulations to the RHS bands!

At last week's All-Bergen County Band auditions, more than 350 students from around the county competed for 85 positions in the performing ensemble recognizing Bergen's best musicians in the county. How's this for a performance? A total of 21 Ridgewood High School band members were selected to perform in this year's All-County Band, the most ever chosen from one school.

That's an amazing accomplishment! I'm very proud of our students and teachers.

You can witness the talent of these students -- and 180+ others -- at the RHS Winter Concert, Wednesday December 8 at 8:00 p.m. at the RHS Campus Center. Admission is free. The program will include the Symphonic Band and the Concert Band & Wind Ensemble.

See you there?
