Music Boosters – Are you one?
If you have a child in band or choir at the middle or high school level, you are a booster! Even if you don’t, but wish to support the music programs in the G-E-T School District, you are a booster!


Hello parents of band and choir students,

On behalf of G-E-T Music Boosters, welcome (or welcome back) to the high school music program.  If you’re new to the program, or if you missed this information in the past, we’d like to welcome you and ask that you take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the organization.  Visit the Music Booster page (under the High School tab) at the district website, or click here. Make sure to read the document explaining the points system.  The band and choir trip will be in the spring of 2021, and earning these points will help you pay for that trip; or smaller trips in the meantime. You may also follow us on Facebook.

Our organization is open to all parents of G-E-T middle school and high school music students. You don’t have to play a formal role in the group to attend meetings and express your concerns or find out what we’re up to throughout the year. Just attend a monthly meeting, held at 7:00 pm on the 3rd Monday of each month in the high school choir room (except for meetings that fall on the same night as a concert, when we meet at 6:00 pm).  Remember, one of the easiest ways to earn points is just to attend the monthly meetings! (One point per meeting.)

Positions open are three co-coordinators for the winter sports concessions stand.  If you have questions, feel free to ask any of the officers listed on the district website, and we’d love to see you at our next meeting.

Have a great day!

WSMA State Honors High School Band

Started in 1967, the WSMA State Honors Music Project provides musically talented students with an opportunity to rehearse and perform with the nation’s finest conductors in a professional, highly disciplined setting. Selected through the rigorous audition process, students are challenged to perform at their musical best throughout the short rehearsal period, which culminates with a performance in October at the Wisconsin State Music Conference held in Madison each year. For many of these young musicians, the WSMA State Honors Music Project offers the experience of a lifetime, creating friendships, memories and skills they take with them in whatever path they choose.

The G-E-T High School Band is extremely proud this year to have not one, not two, but three of its members selected to the WSMA State Honors Band. For the High School Honor Band, students attend a week-long camp at UW Green Bay to work with a guest conductor and sectional coaches to prepare for a “Work in Progress” Concert at the end of camp. Then, the students go home to be members of their individual school bands again. At the end of October, the High School and Middle School Honor Bands reconvene in Madison to rehearse and prepare for their final concert as part of the Wisconsin State Music Conference. The High School Band gets to do their final performance in the beautiful Overture Center in Madison. The Middle School Honor Band meets for the first time, rehearses for two days and performs a concert at the end of the convention. As an eighth-grader, freshman, Elsie Marley auditioned on percussion and was selected to be a member of the 2019 WSMA State Middle Honors Band. Junior Emily Schrenkler and senior, Emily Cook both auditioned on clarinet and were selected to the WSMA State High School Honor Band. Congratulations to these fine musicians and their accomplishment this year in representing G-E-T at the State Honors level.
