On Saturday, May 14, @ 5:00 p.m. the Inaugural RIMEA Invitational Honors Band will perform a free concert ($5 suggested donation) at Edward R. Martin Middle School in East Providence.
The Invitational Honors Band (IHB) is a new program, designed to provide access to a high-quality festival band experience for middle-school students across the state. The long term goal for the IHB is to enroll participants from every middle school in Rhode Island. In this inaugural year, the ensemble consists of 62 students from 18 different schools across the state.
The Rhode Island Music Education Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit professional organization with over 300 active and retired music educators, private-lesson teachers and collegiate members serving students in public, private, and charter schools across the state. Please consider donating to provide scholarships enabling equitable access for students to participate in festivals, ensembles, and master classes. Thank you.
