Dear Music Parent,

Welcome to Unity Music Boosters! As a parent of a child in Band or Chorus, you are automatically a Music Booster! The kids and the music directors need your help to be successful.

Music Boosters sponsored several events during previous school years, including All Out Acappella Concerts, hosted a trip to Chicago to see the musical “Aladdin”, organized fundraisers to meet Music Directors "wish list" needs and assisted both Marching Band and Show Choir at competitions.   Music Boosters also provided partial scholarships to Unit 7 students to attend Summer Music Camps where they received intensive instruction and exposure to different aspects of music.  Our fundraising efforts have also contributed funds to the Unity East/West performance risers, Show Choir risers, sound system in the HS Auditorium and numerous other instrument needs.

We are preparing for another exciting year with the Unity Music Program and we need your help as a Booster volunteer.   You can be a part of a great year of growth and opportunity for our kids.

Please fill out the questionnaire with your contact information and volunteer interests and click the "submit" button.  One of our current officers will then contact you so you can get more details and ask questions. Please be sure to visit unitymusicboosters.org to stay informed about music activities all year long.
