Urbana Band Boosters

We invite you and your student to participate in Urbana Band Boosters. This booster club is for the families of participants in Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band and Color Guard.

If you have a student who is not yet in high school but is a part of the band program (or thinking about joining), you are welcome as well.  By getting kids and parents involved at a younger age, we make the program stronger, which is a benefit not only to those currently in high school but those who will be there in the years to come.

Time commitment can be a few minutes to hours depending on your availability.  

Our support of the bands includes contributing our time and talents to:

·         Receptions after concerts

·         Uniform inventory and management

·         Solo/Ensemble Contest

·         Fundraising for student trips, year-end awards, and special projects

·       Grant writing for funding opportunities

·         Concert programs and guides

·         Guest artist opportunities

·         Tiger Marching Band chaperones, van/trailer, and pit crew


We Need You!!

Join us for Booster meetings in the UHS Band Room at 6 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month during the school year. 

Also, you will want to join the Urbana Band Boosters Google group to receive announcements and requests for assistance.

This email list is the easiest way for us to communicate and for you to receive information about all we have going on.
