Music Boosters

  • Marching Band

    The San Mateo High School Music Department is gearing up for another year of superb music education with a full and exciting concert and activity schedule. The Music Boosters, a parent volunteer organization providing financial support and advocacy, is an integral part of the ongoing operations of the many groups within the Music Department. Last year, volunteer hours and financial contributions allowed the Concert Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, Color Guard, Winter Guard, Orchestra, Vocal Ensemble, Concert Choir, and Chamber Singers to perform and compete throughout the year.

    The Music Department is looking forward to a fantastic trip to Hawaii for the bands and orchestra. the choir trip destination will be Disneyland and surrounding areas. Both trips will take place this coming spring. More details can be found on the Bearcat Music Website.
