Message from co-Presidents Kim and Jeff Laird

Dear Glenbard West Music Parents,

Please come to the:    Curtain Raiser Concert!

Monday, August 28th at 7:30pm in the auditorium at Glenbard West
Our orchestra, bands, and choirs will each perform a selection and Mr. Jeffrey, Mr. Ortega, and Mr. Walsh will provide a brief overview of music events for the coming year. The program should end around 8:45pm.

AMP consists of volunteer parents of Glenbard West music students working with the directors to enrich the music program beyond the level possible under the school budget, including:
  • Scholarships for private lessons
  • Uniforms, awards, equipment
  • Fundraising activities to offset various expenses
AMP needs your help! Please consider contributing to enriching your student’s music experience:
  1. Make an Annual Contribution – Give whatever amount you can. There are over 350 students currently enrolled in the music program, if each family donates even a small amount, that would add up to a healthy budget to be used to enrich your student’s music experience at Glenbard West. You will be recognized for your donation in each of the programs throughout the year. DONATION LINK
  2. Take out a Program Ad - Advertise your company, event, business, home crafts, services or take a family ad to display your support of your student. The program book will be distributed at all 8 music department curricular concerts throughout the concert season. PROGRAM AD LINK
  3. Engage in fundraising activities – Offset various student expenses with fundraising activities such as the Scrip program, Holiday Greens sale, Barones pizza coupons, Poinsettia sale and many more. FUNDRAISING INFO LINK
  4. Volunteer - Sign up to volunteer for a wide range of events this year by following this link: AMP VOLUNTEER SIGN UP LINK
Know what’s going on: Visit the AMP WEBSITE for up-to-date info and news including links to the Glenbard West Music Calendar, Fundraiser options for your student, even a photo gallery of recent and past music events.

Please get involved, at any and all levels that work for you. We look forward to seeing you on August 28th.
