This Wednesday, October 13th, the El Toro High School Instrumental Music Program will host their Fall Concert. The concert begins at 7 PM in Charger Hall. Admission for this concert is FREE! We will be featuring outstanding performances from our Jazz Band, Symphonic Band, Combined Orchestra, and Wind Ensemble!
We will also be hosting a bake sale before the concert and during intermission, so please consider donating a baked item to our sale table. Use this link to volunteer to make a baked goods donation. Please individually wrap your items for ease of distribution and drop-off before the performance.
We will also have information on our Concert Attire (get your orders in this week if you haven't already!), holiday wreaths and trees, as well as ETHS instrumental music merchandise for sale, which make great Christmas presents!
Come on out to our first performance of the year to hear these fantastic music ensembles!

Our next Music Boosters general meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 10th, from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM. This is a general meeting; all music program parents are encouraged to attend. We will be discussing concert attire, our upcoming competitions, and the remaining football games. We will also be electing two board members into office: Treasurer, Pardip Rai, and VP of Admin, Jill Nogle.
We appreciate all of the financial contributions to our program. By this time, all RBR donations should have been fulfilled. If you have any questions on what you have paid to date, please contact us by email.
Thursday evening at the end of marching band practice we will have another weekly drawing for students that sold tickets for our Disney Opportunity Drawing Fundraiser. Your student has the opportunity to win a gift card each week. Please remind your student to return ticket stubs sold and money by the start of practice on Thursday for an opportunity to be entered into the weekly drawing.
The meeting will be held in the band room, so please be sure to bring your masks. Those who are uncomfortable attending in-person can attend via Zoom (click here).
We look forward to seeing everyone!
The October newsletter is out, hot off the presses, produced by our hard-working President, Parliamentarian, and Booster Board members! In it is information about the Spirit Wear Sale, the Disneyland Opportunity Drawing Fundraiser, the October RBR practice and football schedule, the Dine-Out Night at Brizio's, upcoming fundraisers, donations, Project Inspire, and the Music Angels sponsorship program. Please click below to view it.
Please sign-up to help with volunteer duties at the home football game tonight, where our RBR musicians will be performing pep tunes in support of our Chargers football team (who so far is undefeated this season). Our kids can't take the field without our help. It's also great fun for the parents.
Volunteers will be meeting in front of the band room at 5:30 PM.
And if you can't volunteer, we still hope to see you at the game. The Music Boosters are usually seated at the opposite end from the entrance—look for a sea of boosters t-shirts. So come out and show some school spirit, and your support for our band and football players!
To all parents with students who are in Marching Band—the following "Authorization to Treat a Minor" form needs to be completed and turned-in prior to the competition at Mission Viejo High School. Please turn in completed forms to Mr. Miller.
All instrumental music students (except Jazz Band) will be required to wear formal concert attire for the 2021-2022 music season, as described below.
Girls will have two options: 1) dress or 2) shirt & pants combo.
Boys will wear a black tuxedo (with white shirt and royal blue bow tie).
How to Place Your Order
You will place your order directly with Cousins at their website. You may provide your own formal black shoes or order from Cousins Concert Attire.
If you need assistance in getting the appropriate measurements for your child, please use the link at the Concert Attire website for directions on how to measure your child, or telephone the company for step-by-step directions.
Please note: All garments come without a hem. In the past, we successfully used Original Hems Studio, 23034 Lake Forest Dr., Lake Forest (949) 916-0111. But you can use your own alterations shop or do the alterations yourself.
Please remember to leave time for ordering, shipping, and alterations to have your concert attire ready on time. Ordering deadline is October 8th. Late orders will be accepted, but they will not likely arrive in time for the December concert.
We have a limited quantity of gently used attire available as well. Please inquire for details with Fidelma.
For additional info, please visit the Cousins Concert Attire website. Please contact Fidelma Roberts by phone or email with any questions or concerns.
Information and details can be downloaded below.
Tonight, parents will have a chance to preview the Marching Band perform this season's show, entitled, Building Towards Tomorrow. The performance will be held in the football stadium at 7:00 PM. Parking will be available at the lot off Serrano.
We will have dinner prior to the show. At 5:30 PM, taco dinners will be served by Tacos & Co. If you didn't sign-up for a taco dinner before Tuesday, you can bring your own dinner instead.
Parent volunteers are needed for tonight's preview. We need your help to make tonight a success. Please follow this link here to join the sign-up.
Details can be found in the flyer below.
All comers are welcome; the performance is free. Bring out your family and friends as well. The season was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, so this year's show is all the more important. Let's make this comeback season a success! Please come out to show your support for your children.
