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.
