Oboe
The oboe is similar in its appearance to a clarinet, but it is played using a “double reed” instead of a single reed and mouthpiece. Selection of oboe players is EXTREMELY limited. VERY few will actually be selected for oboe.
 

Physical Characteristics
Students with profound overbites or underbites would have EXTREME difficulties producing good sounds on the oboe since the embouchure (mouth position) requires equal pressure on both sides of the reed at the same placement.
 

Other Considerations
 Because the oboe is such a difficult instrument to master, only students with high academic performance records will be considered. Students with a history of disciplinary trouble will NOT be considered for oboe.

 

Students who choose (and are selected) to play oboe are REQUIRED to take weekly private lessons with the applied lesson teacher at North Richland Middle School. Private lessons cost $20.00 per week and scholarships are available based on financial need and demonstration of diligent work ethic.

RHS Cluster Fall Rally

Optional Performance Opportunity. Due to BISD Band Fest being canceled for this year, we have organized a Cluster Performance at the FAAC. This performance is for Honors and Concert Band (7th/8th grade) students only, although beginners (6th grade) and their families are highly encouraged to attend this event as an audience member. We will offer extra credit to anyone that attends the performance or as an audience member. 

These procedures and policies are set by BISD to ensure student, family, and friend safety:

  • Masks required for all students and family/friend guest attendees

  • We encourage all people to bring their own hand sanitizers AND we will have sanitizer stations available, as well

  • Stadium seats will be marked to assist with guest attendees maintaining 6 feet apart

  • Stadium seat capacity is 980 people – families may sit together but must remain 6 feet away from other guests

  • No adults will be allowed on the turf at any point

  • When leaving, audience members will be released by section to assist with distance protocols, please wait for your section to be released before leaving the stands

  • Students will be released immediately at the conclusion of the event and will go directly to the parking lot to meet their guardians and go home

RAAB and school officials will be stationed at the gated entrance reminding and enforcing all attendees to wear masks.

Here is the schedule for this event. 

  • 5:30 pm - all Honors and Concert Band members arrive at the FAAC. 

    • Enter through the West side of the stadium (by the tennis courts). Look for an NRMS Band Director to help guide you when you arrive 

  • 6:00 pm - Rehearsal with RHS and North Ridge Begins 

    • All students will be spaced out appropriately on the football field. 

  • 7:00 pm -  Performance begins. 

  • 7:45 pm - Performance is over. 

    • Every student needs to have an adult in the audience so everyone can go home immediately after the performance.
