Wonderful choice!

I applaude the RPO for the wonderful choice of Maestro Remmereit. He was, by far, the most well liked by patrons, of all the candidates. He is magical, entertaining and brings brilliant sound to our Theater. Our great Orchestra will continue to bring us excellent music under his leadership.
Thank you, RPO. We are truly blessed.
