2017/2018 Band Handbook
Covering Operational Costs
Music is a lifelong gift and does not end after high school. (See "Why Study Music" under the "Links" tab above). It is my goal that all BRHS Band members consider their time here as the best part of their high school career. Every student is entitled to the highest quality musical experience we can provide. Band is an expensive program to offer, and unfortunately the district allocation comes no where near to meeting the our financial needs. Thankfully, the Bear River Music Boosters has reached the point of being able to fund our base operating expense - assuming they continue to have active support from our parents. This year we are not asking for a donation to help fund the music program. Instead we are asking for your continued and perhaps increased support of Booster needs by volunteering for duties to help us fundraise or to support our performances.
Families who are able to continue making donations to help cover the Music Department's expenses beyond the basic level are strongly and gratefully encouraged to do so at whatever level is within their means. Those who donate $20 or more will be recognized in concert programs throughout the year as a part of our Music Benefactors
program. For information about this, see flyer here
