PLEASE NOTE – there are TWO rehearsals that end with on/off floor practice. Parents who will be at the indoor shows and are able to assist with helping move instruments and props on and off the floor are needed at the times noted on the itinerary.

The Google calendar (which can be found in the calendar section at the top of this website as well as on the indoor percussion BAND App) has been updated accordingly. 

February Candy Bar Fundraiser – Indoor Programs

We will be offering a candy bar fundraiser again this year after some requests from our indoor families!

Students in the indoor programs will be provided an order form, which can also be found by clicking this link. Students who sell the candy will be able to put the proceeds towards their Dayton trip payments. 

Money for all boxes is due by January 26, and no boxes will be able to be returned once purchased. 

2019 Pops Concert Ad Book – now open!

Ads are now available for our 2019 Pops Concert Ad Book!

25% of all ads sold go to student assessments, so this is a great way to help reduce the cost of Dayton trips for our indoor groups, or you may defer the assessment towards next year’s marching band trip. Students must sell ads in 3 of their 4 years in high school to qualify for DSMA scholarships, so if your student has not sold one yet this year, you still have the opportunity!

Please click this link to download the Ad Book order form, which contains all of the information needed to purchase ads and turn in the paperwork & funds. Any questions can be sent to Becky Amaral beckyamaral@dsmahome.org.

2019 Corporate Sponsorships Are Now Available!

2019 sponsorships for our marching band and indoor groups is now open for enrollment!

In 2018, tens of thousands of people throughout New England and the east coast all the way to Dayton, OH saw the logos of our corporate sponsors on our trucks as they traveled to competitions. All three of our show shirts also featured logos from our sponsors, and those shirts have proudly been worn all over the world (yes, the world!).

An organization the size of ours relies heavily on fundraising and the support of our community, and our sponsorship program helps us proudly display the logos of businesses who value the role music education and performance plays in our public schools.

Also, families who sign up corporate sponsors will receive a 25% assessment per sponsorship that they sign up! WOW! 

For more information about making a tax-deductible donation, please visit our Sponsorship page right now. Sponsorship is only open for enrollment until January 31, 2019!!
