Dear Music Families,
Welcome to the PVPHS Music Booster website. You will find (almost) everything you need to know about Music at Pen High here. Check out the Combined Departmental Calendar for the most up-to-date happenings, and attend as many concerts as you can. Our performing groups in Choir, Marching/Concert Band, Jazz, and Orchestra are first class and we'll personally refund any tickets if you leave dissatisfied!
Prospective students should sample our concerts or get involved in some of our elementary and intermediate outreach programs. Music Madness is an after school class geared for middle school students that takes place January-May on Mondays at Pen. Panther Music Mentors is a free summer music tutoring program offered by our fabulous students.
We also encourage you to support our musicians in any way you can. If you are a PVPHS parent, that can be in the form of Music Booster membership and Participation Donations. If you are a community member, you can make a donation with the convenience of Paypal, or by mailed check. If you have unused instruments in your closet to donate, we will put them to good use! Apart from rehearsal space and teacher compensation, we receive no financial support from PVPUSD or PEF, for sheet music, transportation to football games, festivals, and outside performances, stipends for specialty coaches, instrument purchase or repair, etc. You can imagine it is quite costly to keep our program running, and we do the best we can with our decades-old instruments. With your help we'd sound even better!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the wonderful parent volunteers who serve as Presidents of the individual music groups. If you have a general departmental question, you may reach out to us or to Michelle Troutman, our departmental coordinator.
We look forward to seeing you at a concert!
