Welcome

Greetings!

I would like to warmly welcome you to the Arcadia Music Club Webpage.

As President, I look forward to meeting each of you as parents play a vital role in the success of our Club.   The Music Club represents 5 different groups at Arcadia High School:  Band, Orchestra, Color Guard, Percussion and Choir.   There are over 700 students each year active in one of these groups!   In order to have a successful and award winning year, it takes a village of volunteers to make sure everything goes smoothly for our Music Directors and students.   This is where parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer and be active with their student's endeavors.   To keep up with the latest, watch for volunteer requests during the year that are sent out via ListServe, FaceBook, direct emails and this webpage.  

One of the best ways for a parent to stay active is to support the Music Club via a family membership.   There are several different levels of membership and each of these have their benefits.   We also accept Sponsor/Company members and have ways for these groups to be active and help out.   The Music Club is a nonprofit organization, so any donation is tax-deductible.   During Apache Days, we ask that parents download and submit the Membership Form/Donation or visit us at the Music Club table.

The Music Club would like to acknowledge the following members for their generous contributions this year:

$500 - Director's Circle Silver
Shone Wang

$250 - Sponsor

Nanlin Peng

$150 - Donor
Patrick and Michelle Chiu
Ricky Wong and Catherine Lee
Don and Carole Randles

Your name can be included here. Join!


If you have any questions or concerns I am more than happy to help!   Please email me at amc.president@arcadiamusic.org

Regards,

Mery Montgomery
AHS Music Club President, 2017-18
