If you attended RMRU last summer, part of your registration fee included $4 for music and learning tracks for It's Today. If you did not attend RMRU, you will need to pay the $4 fee before you get the music and learning tracks. If you sing with Montana Sapphire or Mountain Jubilee, your chorus has purchased this music for you and has the link to the music and tracks. If you sing with Greeley Harmonix, they bought 6 copies so checks with your chorus to see if a copy was purchased for you.


Payment accepted by PayPal using the email "finance@rmr8.org" in your PayPal account (please select "Friends and Family" to help avoid fees).  Please notate which workshop the payment is for. If you pay by check, please download and print the Registration Form to put in the mail along with your check.

-- Song to be crafted on Saturday – "It's Today" – If you need a copy, write to Ruth Widerski at bariten1@yahoo.com after you register

-- There will be some fine visiting and casual singing around at the hotel on Saturday night!
