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:

$1000 - Director's Circle Gold
Mel and Janet Dang

$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

Marching Koalas Concert, December 28th at 7:00PM

HOST FAMILIES ARE STILL NEEDED FOR THE AUSTRALIAN MARCHING KOALAS!!

Thank you for those who responded and agreed to open your homes for the Marching Koalas.  We are still in need of housing for about 18 students.  Whether you can host two, four, or even JUST ONE, please HELP!  We need 10-12 families to take care of these visiting students.  Let’s come together and make this an experience for everyone involved, especially our Marching Koalas friends.  If you can't help with housing, perhaps you can help with transport.  If you can help in any way, let us know.

We have been given a great opportunity to help promote music from around the world. In February 2017, the Arcadia Music Club made a commitment to help a traveling marching band fulfill a dream of marching in the 2018 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade. The Marching Koalas from the Hunter Valley Region in New South Wales, Australia, will be marching in the 2018 Rose Parade, and the Arcadia Music Club made the commitment to house these fine young musicians from December 27th to January 3rd. There are 66 musicians participating in the tour.

Many people have asked “what does housing include?” Here are the expectations:
Give them someplace to sleep.
Feed them breakfast
Provide transportation to their morning meeting place (usually AHS)
Help them experience Los Angeles on the afternoon of December 30th and day of December 31st
Treat them like one of your family and create life-long friendships

So, WE NEED YOUR HELP!

If you can help in any way, let us know.  Please contact Mery Montgomery (amc.president@arcadiamusic.org) or Tom Forbes (tforbes@ausd.net) if you have questions or want to house some students..

ARCADIA MUSIC CLUB SCRIP
Parents...  did you know the Arcadia Music Club sells Scrip?   We are currently looking for a dedicated parent to take on the task of selling Scrip this school year.   It would involve maintaining the Scrip Cards, receiving and providing Scrip Orders and attending events to sell Scrip.   Scrip is an easy way to provide extra funds to support our Music Department.    Please email Mery Montgomery at amc.president@arcadiamusic.org
