Hello Music Booster Families,


We have ordered 330 wreaths!  Many thanks to all who participated.  Wreath delivery will take place on Wed. December 7.  Students and parents should plan to pick up and deliver orders between 2:00 and 6:00 PM.  If you need to pick them up earlier, please email me at to determine if the wreaths have arrived to school yet that day.  They usually arrive by noon and we then scramble for the next two hours separating the orders for distribution.  If you would like to sign up to help with sorting and distribution, please sign up here:Wreath Delivery and Distribution 


Next Music Booster meeting is Wed. Dec. 7 at 7 PM in room 158.  We will be discussing Basket Bingo, concert receptions, Tri-M coffeehouse, etc. Please join us! The teachers attend these meetings and provide us with important updates about the music program.  


Have and safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Towson University Honor Band Registration Information

posted Oct 5, 2016, 10:15 AM by Towson High Music

The purpose of this message is to give you all the important information regarding the Towson University Honor Band Festival. I very much hope to get all of your students involved and we have a terrific day of music making. Just a quick reminder, here are the logistics.


When: Saturday, December 10th. Its a one-day event culminating with a concert in the evening by both bands and the TU Symphonic Band

Where: Towson University Campus, 7700 Osler Drive, Towson MD, 21204

Fees: 25 Dollars a Student, Checks made payable to TU Foundation (money pays for things like shirt, food, etc...) 

Directors: Brian Balmages, John Miliauskas, Eric Posner, and Chris Cicconi


Guidelines to Register:

1. Open to ALL High School Students, regardless of age.

2. You may nominate as many students as you like, however, last year we were unable to take all the flute students and percussion students nominated, everyone else we were able to accommodate. Rest assure, we will work to have everyone attend!

3. The deadline for registration is October 28thAfter this date, you will receive your accepted students and a timeline outlining the rest of the process. 


How to Register:

There are a few ways to register your students. (the google form is the optimal way)

1. You can nominate your students through the google form.

The downside to this is you would need to input each student's full information then start again for each subsequent student. This form has every detail regarding the entire day! 

2. Send this google form,, to your students and have them fill it out. Let them take the initiative to get all that in. If you take this route, great! If I get 80 students from your band I may ask you to help me narrow it down, or you can ask students who would be interested in coming and playing, and just send the link to them. 

3. Fill out the old form that we have used over the past few years and send back to me as a PDF or word document attachment. That form is attached to this email.


If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! I can't tell you how excited I am to be working with your students again this year at the TU Honor Band. We had about 200 come last year from 10 different counties and it was a remarkable event! 


Looking forward to seeing you all very soon!
