Announcements

   Dear Parents of Performing Arts Students
 If your child plans to join or is currently a member of the Jr. & Sr. HS chorus, band or Drama Department,  please help us support them and become a member of the Hopedale Friends of Music.   We help support  Mr. Chatham and Mr. Beaudry with all concerts, band uniform maintenance, music events & festivals, parades and group trips! 
 See new updates below -calendar has been updated

Info and itinerary for Great East Festival- May 12th is posted on documents/forms


The best part about our fundraisers is that every student in the music department has their own "account" that is maintained by the Friends of Music. 
 Any time that your child fundraises for HFOM, a portion of what they raise goes into their own account that can be used towards future trips to reduce the overall cost.  Funds from the accounts will be automatically applied to the final payment balance.

Membership types:
Patron                    $15.00
Artists Circle           $20.00
Conductor's Circle  $25.00
Composer's Circle   $50.00 
New members are always welcome to join Hopedale Friends of Music!
