In 2016, APPLAUSE! was happy to provide marching band rain coats to keep our musicians warm and dry in all types of weather!
OPRFHS is host to two excellent jazz bands:
The Jazz Ensemble (audtioned)
Jazz Band II (non-audtioned)
it all comes together

Prisms of Winter Concert
Every December the OPRFHS Music Department presents this wonderful 90 minute evening of continuous music from the band, choir, and orchestra. Always a sell-out event, we advise you purchase your tickets in advance on RevTrak (available about a month before the performance date). Please arrive early to enjoy the pre-concert performances by small ensembles in the auditorium lobby, beautifully transformed by APPLAUSE! volunteers into a winter wonderland.
