In Sarasota, Florida, Riverview High School is a four-year comprehensive public high school with a student population of over 2,500 students. The Riverview High School Kiltie Band program consists of over 200 ladies and gentlemen from the student population; it is comprised of Symphonic Winds, Wind Ensemble, Varsity Band, Bagpipes, Color Guard, and Highland Dance. Anyone, regardless of experience, can join the band program at Riverview. Some of the band classes require an audition and some are open to all students. All interested students are asked to meet with one of the directors for more information and requirements. All students enrolled in a band class are required to participate in marching band during football season for the home Varsity football games.
The Riverview High School Kiltie Band Boosters are comprised of band parents and supporters who assist with any projects and lend financial assistance to the band for co-curricular and extracurricular needs. The Boosters also work to promote social and recreational gatherings for members, their families, and friends for the cementing of good fellowship and a social cooperative spirit.
The Kilties are active community performers and consistently earn "Superior" ratings at Music Performance Assessment. Most notably, since 1958, the RHS Kiltie Band has earned consecutive Superior ratings in the Florida Bandmasters Association District Marching MPA.
Kiltie Award Night and Senior Ceremony (KANSC)
Mark your calendars, the annual KANSC event is scheduled for Friday, May 8, 2020, at 6:30 PM. This celebration is the equivalent to a "sports banquet" where all Kilties and their families are welcome. Awards are distributed to Kilties from each grade; special attention is given to our graduating Class of 2020 Kilties with a video presentation that includes each Senior.
As in previous years, the Senior Kiltie's future endeavors are read while they walk across the stage to shake the staff's hands. Please fill out the Senior Questionaire and either (1) scan and email it to me at KiltieSenior@gmail.com it to me at the email address listed below, or (2) take a snapshot of it with your phone and text it to me (941-321-3321). Please do NOT give it to Mr. Dubbert.
The deadline for submitting this form is Monday, February 24. If you have not made a final decision on where you will be attending college, please leave that question blank and email me the information at least one month before the event.
