Check our great memories
Every year, RYCB hosts a retreat, workshop, and concerts. Come and enjoy the great memories with us.
Campbell McLeaod Conductor of RYCB
Campbell is a native of Richmond and an alumnist of the RYCB. During his time at R.C. Palmer Secondary (’97-’02), Campbell was a member of the RYCB where he played Tuba in the Concert Band and Baritone Sax and Bass Trombone in the Jazz Band…
I think that RYCB in general is an important and positive program that allows Richmond students to enjoy music.
The bowling we did this year was a fun event where we were all able to mingle.
I’m glad everyone is friendly and kind.
Place: Palmer Secondary School
Practice Hours: 7 – 9 pm every Monday
