      ROHS Band & Orchestra Boosters is a volunteer group that works to support the Royal Oak High School Band and Orchestra Programs.    

      Participating in music has many proven benefits. Playing music both assists in a student's development and enriches the lives of adults. Students can participate in band, orchestra, or one of the extracurricular music activities.  Extracurricular music activities include marching band, flute choir, pit orchestra, solo and ensemble, pep band, and jazz bands.
