OCTOBER IS FUNDRAISING MONTH

Each year, the YHS Bands, Choirs and Orchestras each participate in regional music festivals.  Our fundraisers help students defray the cost of their participation, and part of the proceeds also benefit the YHS Music Boosters “general fund” which is used to help purchase items that benefit our entire program.
