As we recently shared in the Riverdale Review, Riverdale’s marimba program has been such a hit at the grade school that we expanded it to the high school this year. Now, the high school marimba students have even more reason to celebrate. They received permission from music publisher Hal Leonard to publish an arrangement of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” they created with teacher Michael Smith. “Each arranger will share in the profits of the arrangement,” he says. “This will be a great lesson for the kids on the ‘music business.’ I’m pretty sure this will be the first time a high school music program has published students!! At least I have never heard of this!! I’m so excited.” Click link above to learn more about our Marimba program and see performance videos.
