In response to the current COVID-19 state of the world, RIO would like to ensure you that we will continue to deliver the highest quality summer musical experience we can. We are closely following direction from the CDC, DPI and the schools we work in to ensure a safe and healthy musical experience for everyone.
We understand this may not have been what you (we) would have imagined when the original information was released in January, but, our educational leadership team has been meeting (virtually) and working on how to deliver the best musical instructional content we can in hopes that we can finally meet face to face when we are able to do it safely.
