Douglas Anderson school of the arts band boosters support, promote and help foster interest and involvement in the band program among students, parents, faculty, alumni and the community. DA Band boosters assist our band directors in enhancing our student's experiences by providing volunteer, organizational, and financial support. Fundraising increases opportunities for musical education and experiences for our students by repairing and acquiring instruments, and supporting trip and competition expenses.
Our band program thrives as the result of many wonderful community organizations and individuals! We’d like to thank the following organizations for their support of our band program’s travel to The Midwest Clinic in December 2016:
Student travel to the 2016 Midwest Clinic was made possible in large part by way of a $25k grant from the Jacksonville Children’s Commission, a community organization serving the needs of children and their families throughout Jacksonville, FL.
The DA Band was awarded a $2k tour grant from The Mockingbird Foundation, an all-volunteer non-profit organization founded in 1996 by fans of the band Phish to raise funds for music education.
Concert on the Green was established in 1986 with the goal of supporting the arts within Clay County. To that end, Concert on the Green awarded the band $500 in support of Clay County students who participate in the DA Band program.
Please consider helping us to provide a more "robust" Program by showcasing your student or a local business. This is a perfect time to advertise or wish your musician well. Your student will get to keep half of the proceeds, as they will be applied to their band booster account. Forms are available for download now! Thank you for your support!
