Music Foundation News
The MRHS Music Department needs your help!
The Marriotts Ridge music program received $5,377 from the Howard County Board of Education for 2016-17, DOWN from our budget a year ago. The County budget only accounts for approximately 8.2% of what is truly needed by the music department.
We have an award-winning music department, but the only way we can continue to strive and achieve excellence is by providing the Directors with the finances they need to make it happen. In order to reach our budget of $44,350, we look to fundraising by the Music Foundation, or YOU!
Thank you for supporting music at the Ridge!
Concert Attire Consignment Donations
Are you in need of concert attire?
Every student in a music performance group needs to purchase the standard concert attire: black gown or tux set. Some ensembles have additional rental attire: tails for G/T orchestra men, blue gowns for Women's Choir, vests for Jazz Ensemble, and the fancy attire for Madrigals. **Payment for concert attire is due October 19th.** All new students were sized for standard concert attire. The students should have brought home order forms with the size that fit them marked.
If you are interested in purchasing consigned concert attire, check out the Mustang Consignment List posted online for music families to browse.
Program details available on the consignment website: Mustang Concert Attire Consignment
