The Grove City High School instrumental music program has approximately 300 wind, and percussion musicians who participate in various performing groups. These groups include the Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Concert Bands, Jazz Bands, and Percussion Ensemble. There is also a Flag Corps who perform with the Marching Band and participate in Winter Guard competitions.
The music department strives for excellence in all areas of its performing ensembles and stresses the importance of learning and enjoying music as a part of a student's well-rounded education.

August Booster Meeting
Please remember that the August 1st mandatory Booster meeting will be held at the Nazarene Church across from the high school. The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m., but you should come between 6:30 and 7:30 to turn in forms, pay fees, and sign up for opportunities to help the band.
Please print out, complete, and bring your student medical form, instrument maintenance form (if your student uses a school-owned instrument), and your booster membership application. Remember that 1 membership application may be turned in for 2 people, but we need both to sign it. Also, for returning members, Booster membership applications must be completed and the fee paid every year (membership is only good for one school year).
If you have already turned in any of the above forms for the 2016-2017 school year, thank you (and you don't need to do it again).
There will be notaries at the meeting for medical forms and instrument maintenance forms.

Please see this flyer; and be sure to mark your calendars, so you can come out and purchase your new mattresses while supporting the band.

Rose Bowl Parade GoFundMe Page
The Grove City High School Marching Band has been selected to march in the prestigious 2017 Tournament of Roses parade. This is a great honor, but getting all of the students, staff, chaperones, instruments, and the rest of the equipment to California is expensive. We estimate it will cost about $700,000 for the entire trip, which translates to $2,600 per student. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students as they will never be able to go again in their HS career. We don't want any students left behind, but $2,600 is too much for many band members and that is where we need your help. Our fundraising goal of $100,000 may seem outrageous, but it only reduces each student's cost from $2,600 to approximately $2,200.
You can help!
