RHS & RMS Choirs Awarded Grant from RCCF

The Roscommon County Community Foundation (RCCF) is pleased to announce that they provided a $3,313.00 grant to the Roscommon High School (RHS) and Roscommon Middle School (RMS) Choirs. The Sarah Eulaine Tucker (Class of 1977) Fund provided the funding for the project.

Funding allowed the choir groups to visit Chicago to attend the Broadway musical Hamilton, the story based on the life of Alexander Hamilton. They were also able to visit a few of the famous cultural sites while in Chicago including the Shedd Aquarium and Alder Planetarium. The 6th-8th grade choir members took a trip to the Wharton Theater in Lansing to see the Broadway musical Anastasia, a show that adapts the legend of Grand Duschess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia. Thanks to this grant, nearly 60 students were able to experience a Broadway production. According to choir teacher Carol Rau, “Students benefitted educationally, culturally, and socially.”
