Music on Mondays is a performance platform for students and teachers to showcase their musical talents. The series is the brainchild of Art Department Head Merril Hope-Brown, who said, "Music on Mondays is an idea to get more RC people performing and more people listening to live music as part of their 'ordinary' day. Lunchtime concerts previously have been a bit too long for teachers and students to commit to the whole performance because they have lessons to go to. The Music on Mondays performances are just fifteen minutes, so everyone has enough time to eat lunch and stay to hear it all."
The most recent concert, on April 8, featured original indie folk rock by teachers Tim Koehn (guitar and vocals), Meghan Guss (trumpet), Sean Vander Meulen (percussion), and Francis van der Hoeven (guitar). Previous performances have included L12 students Özüm Sabiha Pamukçu (piano and vocals) and Hakan Akbulut (guitar and vocals), Alper Güneş L12 (piano) and physics teacher Cem Pulathaneli (guitar and vocals). Performers from previous years included teachers as well as students from 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade.
