Once again, I was privileged to attend a stellar performance of Riverside-Brookfield High School’s band and orchestra. So impressive and heartwarming. How fortunate are Riverside taxpayers to support such gifted students and excellent directors?

I was incredulous to hear of rumored cuts to this program. Why not start at the top with administration cuts instead of always dissing the arts programs?

Music lifts our spirits and nourishes our souls. It is badly needed in these times.

Congratulations RBHS bands and orchestras. You make us all so proud.

Keep up the terrific work!
