Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

Throughout the pandemic, music was a gift that helped to buoy our spirits. We experienced its power and magic first hand as our amazing staff and wonderful students were able to practice, play, and even produce four amazing virtual concerts. Much of how these things were accomplished were the result of the incredible investment into the program by you, our Music Booster members. For that, we are forever grateful. Thank you!

Heading into this new school year and the unknowns that it may bring, we are counting on your support again. Through your generous financial donations and volunteer commitments, some of the ways we are able to augment the music program at Hillsdale is by providing:

  • Funding for expert musical clinicians who share new insights, inspire curiosity and growth, and model how music can be part of everyday life.

  • Entry fees for competitions and festivals so our students can test their skills against their peers.

  • Musical instruments for approximately 50% of students in our entry level ensembles who wouldn’t otherwise be able to participate in the program and the subsequent maintenance of these instruments.

  • Monies to support the purchase of additional sheet music so that students can play fresh and appropriately challenging pieces.

Our goal is to keep students engaged, enjoying music, and ready to perform. Any donation to the program is greatly appreciated however we do have two suggested levels:

$75 - Supporting membership

$125 - Patron membership*

*Patron membership includes 4 free concert tickets. These tickets will be mailed to you for use at any upcoming in-person concert. 

To join/donate, visit the Hillsdale High School Foundation's webpage.

All music families are welcome to join our Music Boosters meetings. These meetings are typically held on the third Wednesday of each month from 7:00pm - 8:00pm, either online or in the choir room.

Thank you for helping us keep music an exceptional part of HHS education.
