Portage Northern Bands
Dear Portage Northern Band Families, Friends, and Community Supporters:
Please consider a donation to benefit our students' musical experience and education. Gifts of any size help.
We are fortunate that Portage Public Schools continues to provide music education, and we're grateful that the district funds classroom instruction. But-like most other band programs-we rely on community support to pay for almost everything else!
- Music and marching band instruction, drill and equipment
- Transportation and vehicle rentals
- Fees for competitions and band festivals
- Uniform & instrument cleaning and repair
- Varsity Letter progmm and other student recognition
- Additional music staff to enhance individual student growth
The PNHS band program continues to grow! We have 175 students in our program performing in marching band, three concert bands, jazz band, and a myriad of extracurricular ensembles. The PN band staff is constantly seeking opportunities to enhance the educational experience of all the student enrolled in our program. In June 2016 about 100 students and chaperones traveled to Toronto, Canada for a performance at the Toronto Music Gardens and a clinic with the University of Toronto Band Director. The clinic was one of the highlights of the trip.
And our bands are busier than ever...Marching at football games and competitions across Michigan...performing at several concerts and annually receiving superior ratings at various festivals and having success with individual and ensemble performances throughout the year.
Donate, and you'll feel wonderful supporting our students!
Confidence gained from concerts and competitions transforms our shyest students into shining stars. Lessons about teamwork, communication, and performance translate to any cilneer.
Your contribution is tax deductible.
