Music Boosters

  • We support the outstanding music department at Hillsdale through fundraising, volunteering at music festivals, chaperoning tours, etc. Through our donations we help purchase new instruments, hire clinicians for workshops, provide professional development for our teachers, and much more.

    Your support in Music Boosters is what makes the musical experience at Hillsdale so exceptional. Through your donations and involvement, Music Boosters ensures our students have the essentials needed for a successful program.

    Our budget includes all festival fees and transportation, sheet music, uniforms, and replacement and maintenance of instruments. In recent years Music Boosters have purchased much needed chairs, music stands, and instrument storage lockers for the Music Department.

    Music Boosters meetings are scheduled at 7pm in the Music Building Room 501 on the following Wednesdays: 

    September 18th
    October 16th
    November 13th
    January 22nd
    February 19th
    March 18th
    April 22nd
    May 19th. 

    All music parents are welcome to attend our music boosters meetings. We look forward to seeing you!
