About the Ada Music Boosters:
The Ada Music Boosters are a non-profit, charitable, volunteer-driven organization that supports excellence in music education and performance opportunities for all students of the Ada Exempted Village Schools. Fees paid by Ada music students provide the basic funding needed by the vocal and instrumental music programs. The Ada Music Boosters were formed to enhance music education programs for the benefit of our students. We purchase band uniforms, instruments, Varsity Singers costumes, props and music, and support our state and regional award-winning winter guard, marching band, and show choir. Additionally, we cover some of the costs associated with the marching band’s annual trip to Bands of America Grand Nationals Competition in Indianapolis and assist with funding music department educational trips to New York City, Chicago, and Florida, high school musicals, elementary programs, and other events. If you have questions, please contact one of the Booster officers.
The 2014-15 Patron/membership drive is now underway. Click Here to support the Boosters, including our new ability to Give Online (through Legacy Financial/LegFi.com, our financial management software provider). In addition to the Patron giving levels, we have also established a Varsity Singers Alumni Scholarship to help provide financial support to students who may need assistance to be part of the show choir, as well as, ongoing savings accounts to help when it comes time to purchase marching band uniforms and our equipment trailer, which usually need to be purchased about every 10 years. We’re proud to support all aspects of music education in our schools. Thank you for your continued support of the Ada Music Boosters. Your donation and/or fundraising purchase definitely helps to provide exceptional opportunities for all students involved in vocal and instrumental music at Ada Schools.
