Smoke gets in your eyes at RMS band concert

The flute section keeps time with the conductor despite the fog of smoke that blankets the band.

There was no fire but plenty of smoke during the Ripon Middle School Band’s annual spring concert in the Ripon High School auditorium.

An active smoke machine, along with unusual rhythm instruments played at times by many of the band members, marked what was an innovative and highly entertaining concert offering audience members a wide variety of selections.

Performing under the direction of RMS band teacher Bill Nelson, the concert featured selections from ensembles representing all three of the school’s grades.
