Dear Parents of a Whitefish Bay High School Music Student,


We hope that with your student taking a music class, you will consider joining the Music Parent Association. The organization has been active for more than 75 years supporting the high school music programs. MPA is the umbrella organization, working closely with Band Boosters, Choir Friends and Orchestra Boosters. Membership is open to parents of students in all music classes, including Digital Music, Music Theory and World Drumming.

The deadline to join this year is Dec. 31, 2014.

The MPA membership fee of $25 and revenue from the MPA Concession Stand at sporting events support the music students in the following ways:

  • $100 grant for any student attending a music camp or program over the summer
  • $500 scholarship to four seniors (band, orchestra, choir and one overall)
  • Musicians in residence and sectional clinicians
  • Computer equipment in digital music labs
  • Audio/visual equipment in band, choir, and orchestra rooms
  • Software supporting classroom instruction and practice rooms
  • Baby grand piano for the auditorium
  • Travel stipends for foreign and domestic trips
  • Supplemental support for the band traveling to State for sporting events
  • Commissioned compositions
  • Medals for students competing at Solo and Ensemble

 Please contact Deborah Kohn at Deborah.kohn@med.ge.com to request a membership form.

 MPA needs your support!
