MUSIC AUXILIARY is the amazing "booster" organization that supports and enhances music in the ICCSD!!  Please visit their website at to learn more and how to become a part of this great group!

Below is information released by Music Auxiliary in 2018 that helps to explain even more!!

Dear Music Lover,

What is the Music Auxiliary?

We are an all-volunteer, parent organization dedicated to the support and enrichment of all perfomance music programs – band, orchestra, choir, show choir, and jazz bands – in the Iowa City Community School District. These great programs are avaliable to all students in the district, reaching students in 5th–12th grade.

What do we support?

During the 2017/18 school year, we provided $88,000 to our music programs, including:

·       $20,000 in transportation (e.g. for elementary band and orchestra tours, and other travel of high-school honor bands, high-shool orchestras, etc.)

·       $15,000 in support of All-State music events (transportation, entry fees, clinics, accomodation)

·       $12,000 in entry fees for competitions (e.g. SEIBA, Kennedy Orchestra)

·       $9000 in support of staff for providing music, clinics, 5th grade band super lesson, etc.

·       $5,000 for uniform cleaning

This support significantly reduces the cost of music education for the families in our community.

How can you join the Music Auxiliary? How much does it cost?
Rather than charging a membership fee, we raise money for music activities by asking for donations *:

·       through mailings

·       at concerts (look for our collection boxes when you buy your tickets)

·       at special events like our Fall Car Wash (see p2)

·       through the ICCSD Foundation website:

How else can you help?

·       Volunteer at one of our fundraisers.

·       Ask your child’s music director about becoming their parent representative.

Thank you for your continued support of the Iowa City Music Auxiliary!
