The revenue we raise from contributions through our annual appeal and other fundraising efforts provides support in the following ways:

Scholarships and Awards
Friends of Music funds two $2,000 Scholarships and a variable number of Awards (each under $1,000) to seniors hat have participated in NHS music department performance ensembles, a Cappella clubs, SAMD, and the Spring musical including those who worked in tech or stage crew.   Scholarship and Award recipients exemplify the FOM spirit by actively participating and supporting the music and performing arts community inside and/or outside of the classroom during their years at NHS. 
NHS Music Awards Dinner and Cabaret
All music students and their families are invited to attend the annual Caberet in May, hosted by FOM. Come celebrate the end of the year with NHS Music Department faculty and friends. An award ceremony will honor our graduating seniors and a select number of underclassmen.
The Bob Ayoub Instrument Fund
These funds are designated for the purchase and replacement of school-owned instruments for all bands and orchestra.
FOM generously arranges for refreshments throughout the year, including:
  • Tech Week: to over 90 students during final rehearsal week of SAMD and the musical 
  • WinterFest: at the dessert buffet
  • Student Concerts: to audiences at all chorus, orchestra, and band concerts  
Communications & Technology
FOM funds enable parents to receive up-to-the minute information on music activities through our website, printed materials, and email communications.

Thank you for your generous support of NHS Friends of Music!
