Alonso High School Band
Organized by: Band Booster
This band has given many students the priveledge to be in a high school band without paying thousands of dollars. Unfortunately though years of doing that has put the band in a large $7,000 debt so it is harder when instruments need to get repaired because than we become even more in debt. We do fundraisers but it just isn't enough for all of the dues. Some students individually do not have the $250 to pay annually to be in band and their parents already struggle with income. So helping us out may help waver students of at least part of this debt. I understand band is not a required class but think about music and the way it has impacted your life. Music is a wonderful thing that can be so personal and help many people through hard times. We are a large group of about 150 students which can be expensive considering we also have to raise enough money to buy new uniforms or else we will be stuck with the same uniforms for 10 more years, which already have stains and worn down. And the uniforms alone will cost around $20,000. Most people don't realize how expensive band can get but with all of the buses in the beginning of the year taking UA to different games and the uniform dry cleaning cost so much.
