Rio band has been selected as one of only three HS groups nationally to participate and compete in the Charles Mingus Festival, put on by Mr. Mingus’s widow, Sue Mingus at NYC’s Manhattan School of Music in February. This is the sixth time Rio has been selected for this festival. Rio was chosen as the HS winner in 2013 and 2014.
This is one of the reasons why we choose Rio.
The event will include a screening of "Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine" and a conversation with Matt's parents, Dennis and Judy Shepard.
San Juan Unified teachers, administrators, parents and students are encouraged to sign up for California State University, Sacramento’s 2016 College of Education Multicultural Education Conference, to be held Saturday, Feb. 27.
