PMS/PHS Band Fundraiser Due to Lost Performances
The PHS Jazz Band is unable to hold its annual YOSHI'S PERFORMANCE FUNDRAISER on April 6. This event was the main fundraiser for the PMS and PHS Band program and we are looking to the community to donate here to support the needs of the department in this difficult time.
This year we plan to use the money to purchase one flugelhorn at a cost of approximately $2,500.00 with the goal of purchasing a set of 4 over the next few years. Now that funding has been reduced, any additional proceeds will go towards secondary clinicians, as necessary.
With last year’s proceeds we purchased a set of 20 new music stands and a stand rack, a new percussion stand, and improved our inventory of percussion instruments and accessories, including specifically, Latin percussion instruments (castanets, tambourine, wood clavés, salsa bongo bell, and Latin twist shaker).
In past years, proceeds from this annual fundraiser have enabled us to purchase: alto, tenor, and bass saxophones and cases, 2 amps, speakers, concert snare drum, bari sax mouthpieces, and a variety of percussion accessories.
