Welcome to the MHS Band & Orchestra Boosters!
Parents & guardians of MHS band & orchestra students are automatically members of MHS Band & Orchestra Boosters!
The Band & Orchestra Boosters exists to ensure that every student musician in band & orchestra classes & co-curricular activities can have a rich and meaningful experience learning about and performing music. Although the 2020-2021 school year is beginning online, our mission remains the same. We are currently working on ways to engage with the band & orchestra community and do what we can to support music education at MHS.
The Band & Orchestra Boosters will update this website as volunteer opportunities become available. Also, please check the E-news from Mr. Brown, Mr. Kurr, Mr. Rothcacker, and Mr. Ver Voort for Band & Orchestra Booster news.
Congratulations to the MHS Directors for receiving
the 2020 Wisconsin Music Educators Association Melvin F. Pontious Creative Sparks Award!
"The Wisconsin Music Educators Association (WMEA) recognizes music programs that foster imaginative, creative, and innovative teaching practices in music education." Mr. Brown, Mr. Kurr, Ms. Pitt, Mr. Rothacker, and Mr. Ver Voort will be recognized during the 2020 Wisconsin State Virtual Music Conference during the week of October 25.
