Parents, stay informed with the BAND app

This year, Band and Orchestra will be using a platform called the BAND app to communicate. This is a supplement to the emails sent out weekly.

The advantages of this app include:

  • Notifications sent directly to one’s phone or device.
  • Instant communication to relay last-minute changes or details.
  • Integrated calendar (with ability to import the calendar to your phone’s calendar).
  • Attachments tab to keep track of any forms.

It is recommended every parent/ guardian sign up for this app. This group is specifically for any parent/guardian of a student in the band or orchestra.

Download and join the BAND app.

March Forth: A Month of Giving to the EAHS Band and Orchestra

As we strive to create one of the nation’s finest music programs, we are kicking off our second annual March Forth fundraiser. This fundraiser will last through March 4th, which is known as “National Marching Band Day.” As our program grows, we want to continue to be able to provide EVERY student with the tools they need to be successful.

What is the March Forth campaign?

We are opening the March Forth fundraiser for one month, with a goal of $15,000 in unrestricted funds. It is a large sum of money, but if 500 people donated $30, we would reach our goal! All donations are tax deductible.

GOAL: RAISE $15,000 BY
MARCH 4, 2021

Why $15,000?

It costs a substantial amount of money to not only maintain, but also to grow a quality music program. With your help, we hope to provide some of the following in the near future:

  • Six $1,000 scholarships
  • Private lesson subsidies ($750 for one year’s worth of lessons)
  • Guest clinicians ($500 for one clinician)
  • Concert tuba ($6,000 each)

It costs approximately $75,000 to maintain the programs the IMA supports on an annual basis. Your unrestricted donation helps us to defray the costs to not only maintain, but grow the program.

Donate to March Forth

Donate and spread the word about March Forth to help us reach our campaign goal.
