Orchestra Boosters 
  
The orchestra booster organization is comprised of interested parents, family members, and friends who give support to the Orchestral Department. They assist the director with event execution, fundraising, travel, and other duties. All parents are strongly urged to be an active contributing member of the booster organization. Booster meetings are held once a month, generally on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.; consult the orchestra calendar for details.
