Who are orchestra boosters?
The Edina Orchestra Boosters is comprised of volunteers who give their time and/or financial assistance to support Edina’s exceptional orchestra programs for students in the 5th grade through 12th grade. The Boosters are led by a board which organizes activities and assistance for the Edina school orchestras. We have been fortunate to have a supportive community who understands the importance of the arts as a non-discretionary component of K-12 education.
What do we do?
We promote the arts through the orchestra programs and allow students to perform at their highest level to achieve their aspirations and dreams. We support all district-wide orchestra performances, special events and individual school student-led orchestra leadership councils. We personally contribute and raise funds to support the orchestras and orchestra programs under the leadership of four magnificent orchestra directors from the elementary,middle, and high school programs.
What do we need from you?
We provide support for performances that include: Ticket Sales, Decorating, Ushering, Hospitality, Publicity, Fundraising, and more. There are also opportunities available to serve on the board for 2017-18.
The Edina Orchestra Boosters is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Your contributions are tax deductible. Each year we provide $7,000 - $9,000 of funds that cover program expenses beyond the district’s fine arts budget, supplements for equipment, uniforms, sheet music, and financial support for orchestra outreach trips. Please consider making a donation today. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
…and invite a friend! Music needs to be played, but music also needs to be heard. The performances of Edina Orchestras are always impressive. The students play at a maturity level far above their years. They tackle difficult material, and they pour their passion into their performances. These orchestras deserve to play to a packed house so please attend, and bring a friend!
The boosters, staff, and students thank you for your support.
