Preparations are underway for the OMEA Northeast Region State Band Adjudicated Event - held right here at North Royalton High School. We are very excited that we are the only band program to have four concert bands participating at the state level for this region, and we are also excited that we are able to host this event right here at our own home school. (Schedules and itineraries can be found on the Band Website.)
However, there is a great deal of responsibility entrusted to us for hosting this event. We have each of the students volunteering to help with volunteer shifts, but there are certain shifts that can only be held by adults.
We are asking for a few more adult volunteers to please help us out the weekend of April 28 and 29. We have minimized the number of adult shifts required based on absolute need.
If you can volunteer even a few hours - it would be greatly appreciated - and the jobs are not difficult. Jobs range from making sure doors remained closed during a performance, to making sure the sightreading areas are closed to the public.
If you can volunteer just a few hours - please click the enclosed link to our page on Sign-Up-Genius – and anything you can contribute is appreciated. We would not be able to host this event without the support of the Band Boosters and volunteers like you!

This year's basket raffle will have a wine pull and we need donations! Sign up here to donate a bottle of wine or champagne of your choice.
To participate in the wine pull the day of the event you will need to purchase a ticket and then pick a random bottle of wine! All wine bottles will be wrapped (wrapped to hide the bottle and value) from a selection of expensive, medium range, and cheap wines.
You can drop your donation off on my porch at 12740 Pinebrook Dr or I can come pick them up.

Band News, Events
Hello Fellow Band Parents,
We are very proud to be sponsoring the OMEA States event in our school! As you know, our bands SWEPT the Westlake District Band Contest with SUPERIOR ratings. Let’s show our support and spirit and give our visiting bands a WARM welcome to NRHS!
State Band Contest is on Friday, April 28 (3:30-11:30 pm) and Saturday, April 29 (7:30-11:30 am). It takes roughly 100 volunteers to support this event! We only have 25% of the spots filled. It is another significant fundraiser for the Band Boosters and will be successful because of our parent volunteers.
All band students will be assigned a job by Mr. Vitale to help with hosting this event. Please consider joining us for a 3 hour (or more) position of your choice. It's a great way to be with friends, show your NORO pride and help out the band! The jobs are simple, and we can assure you that, due to the flexibility of the schedule, you will get to see your student perform.

Hello fellow band parents!
Our next Easter Seals fundraising event will take place during our holiday concerts. Please share our event on all of your social media platforms (email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) that you use! So many people love this opportunity! The only thing that holds us back from filling the truck this holiday season is not getting the word out! We will have the info on our band website and Facebook. Please help us out by spreading the word! Just copy and paste.
Please join us for our “Fill the Truck” event on Sunday, December 18th and Monday, December 19th!
North Royalton Band Boosters will partner with Easter Seals Northern Ohio to not only raise money for the North Royalton Band program, but also to help local children and adults with disabilities.
- WHO: We need YOU! Tell your friends, family, neighbors, churches, or anyone else looking to clear clutter and do something GOOD for our community during this holiday season!
- WHAT: An Easter Seals truck will be parked at North Royalton High School, just outside of the Performing Arts Center 14713 Ridge Road to accept donations of clothing, blankets, towels, shoes, purses, stuffed animals, cloth lunchboxes and backpacks, etc. Even stained items can be recycled! The more items we donate, the more money we will raise! (*All donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt when you drop off your items). Our goal is to Fill The Truck to capacity to support our North Royalton Band program. We challenge you to fill a bag with cloth items and donate it to our fundraiser this holiday season.
- WHEN: Sunday, December 18th from 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm and again from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm. *between 2 pm and 4 pm donations can be left next to the truck as we will be enjoying the holiday performance of North Royalton’s finest musicians in the Performing Arts Center at this time. Monday, December 19th from 4:00 pm until 7:00 pm.
Start “stashing your stuff” and do something GOOD for children and adults with disabilities while helping the North Royalton High School Band! You can use ANY bag for donations! No hard goods will be accepted at this event.
Also, come visit us at the Easter Seals truck and lend a hand! It's easy and fun work while connecting with our neighbors! Here's the sign up genius link.
