Richmond Elementary Honour Band

The Richmond Elementary Honour Band (REHB) has been on the music scene of Richmond since 1983.  REHB is sponsored by the Richmond Youth Concert Band (RYCB) which is an auditioned ensemble of secondary school students from Richmond whose mission is to provide quality band music education and performance opportunities for its members.

Mrs. Lozovsky-Burns – who is the music teacher at Whiteside Elementary school – is the conductor of REHB.

The REHB is composed of predominantly grade 7 students who are taking music at their elementary school or grade 6 students in their second year of band instruction.

The REHB rehearses on Wednesdays from 3:30pm to 4:45pm from February to early May – when they share the stage at the Gateway Theatre with the RYCB at the Music for Moms concert. There will also be a 2 day tour of 6 elementary school in May.  Be prepared to miss 2 days of school.

Members of the REHB and other music students in grade 7 are encouraged to audition for the Richmond Youth Concert Band.
