Please mark it on your calendar. Come to the RMHS CHOIR ROOM at 7:30pm for some REFRESHMENTS and A LOT of information about our upcoming HAWAII TOUR to the PACIFIC BASIN MUSIC FESTIVAL in March 23-29, 2019!
Here is the LATEST update of the INCREDIBLE performance tour for the RMHS CHAMBER SINGERS and REFLECTIONS A CAPPELLA CHOIRS! We will be leaving on MARCH 23rd and returning on MARCH 29th. Dr. Haga has already approved the tour/music festival, so we have a few more district approvals, but have already put down over $12,000 to hold our place at one of the most respected student music festivals in the world. NOTE: Students will be housed in QUAD rooms, containing students only. Chaperone fees will not be subsidized, and will be billed as per the last page of this itinerary. If you wish to change the rooming for your student, that will be subject to additional billing and will not be provided by the RMHS Singing Rattler Choir Boosters. WE ARE SO EXCITED TO OFFER THIS TO OUR ADVANCED CHOIR MEMBERS THIS SEASON!

PLEASE plan on ARRIVING TO LAX earlier, by about 5:30pm, so we can make CERTAIN that ALL TRAVELERS ARRIVE ON TIME! If you are not on time for ANY REASON, the planes simply will not wait! Even calling Mr. E's cell phone can't hold the plane!!!! SEE YOU TOMORROW AT THE LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT by 7pm at the LATEST, but 5:30 is better! GO SINGING RATTLERS!
ATTENTION AUSSIE TRAVELERS: IF you want to also do the SKYWALK (the scary part) at the SYDNEY TOWER, you MUST PRINT OUT AND HAVE PARENTS SIGN THIS DOCUMENT! PARENT PICTURE MUST ALSO BE WITH THIS DOCUMENT! You MUST MUST MUST get this done if you want to do the SYKDECK!
"Did I remember everything? Is this really happening? Am I going to have fun? Will the concerts be OK, good, great or AMAZING? Will my family be OK while I'm gone? Will I be OK while I'm going? Did I pack the right clothes? Will I make new friends in Australia? Do I have my performance shoes, and my walking shoes?"...This blogger believes that these could be SOME of the questions going through your mind as you go on your first EPIC TRIP/TOUR! DON'T WORRY...chances are that you've done everything pretty darn well. ANYTHING you need can be procured in Australia while you are there and you have some INCREDIBLE adults as chaperones...oh, Mr. E too...and he's a good traveler...a REAL good one. Now lets talk FOOD! HALEY C-E...FRIED CHICKEN! The Taiwan Fried Chicken stand right by the hotel (https://foursquare.com/v/hotstar-large-fried-chicken-%E8%B1%AA%E5%A4%A7%E5%A4%A7%E9%9B%9E%E6%8E%92/53113acc498e228cbde7abf2 ) is SO LIT! I also like the INDIAN restaurant MASALA BOWL right across from World Square Mall...not fancy, but CHEAP and DELISH (https://www.zomato.com/sydney/masala-bowl-cbd). For ITALIAN, I like (and the coffee is GOOD too) MACCHIATO restaurant...their PIZZA IS BOMB! (http://www.macchiato.com.au/)...TIME TO EAT OUT ANYONE?????
Remember, the CHOIR ROOM HAS OFFICE HOURS TODAY FROM 9am - 12noon! Then Mr. E has to pack and get ready...he's driving Hannah and Sara R. to LAX and we are leaving super early, at 9:30am...after 9am, the choir room is shut and locked, so you'll need to have EVERYTHING you need for tour out of there today!
YOURS IN MAKING THE RMHS CHOIR FIRST EVER INTERNATIONAL MUSIC TOUR A HUGE HIT!
SINGING RATTLER PRIDE!
Andrew Eisenmann, AKA, Mr. E is writing this blog about RMHS CHOIR TRIPS and TOURS! We've been to CHICAGO, LOS ANGELES and SYDNEY (Australia) together...WHERE WILL WE BE SINGING NEXT? OH, Honolulu, HAWAII!
