What is the MPA?

The Music Parents Association is a volunteer organization that supports all of the Hinsdale Central High School music department classes and extracurricular activities, and also supplements the department and its students with financial support. Membership is open to all parents of band, choral and orchestra students.

MPA supports the HCHS music program in a variety of ways:

  • Organizing dinners at band and choir recruitment events
  • Hosting after-concert receptions
  • Offering scholarships for student leader training and education
  • Financing educational and travel scholarships for students in need
  • Providing parent manpower at concerts, parades and football games
  • Supporting unexpected purchases not covered in the school budget
