HELP NEEDED AT UPCOMING AREA BAND & ORCHESTRA FESTIVALS
The College Park Area Band Festival is Monday, March 16th and the College Park Area Orchestra Festival is Monday, March 23rd.
These are great community events where music students from all of Pleasant Hill's schools come together to present a wonderful concert. This is an especially happy year because we welcome the return of elementary school music students!
College Park Instrumental Music Boosters would like to make sure we have a presence at these events, and we need your help. Both students and parents can volunteer for a variety of jobs, including setting up or cleaning up the gym, ushering, selling Booster items (such as cookbooks & dining cards) or selling food items.
We are asking Orchestra students and families to volunteer at the Band Festival and the Band students and families to volunteer at the Orchestra Festival. We are also asking volunteers to wear CP purple and musicians to wear their purple music shirts and dark jeans without holes.
Please consider donating an hour or so of your time to make this a successful event.
Click here to go to Volunteer Spot and sign up for a shift. Thanks for your help!
