The Music Boosters provide financial assistance in support of the music students enrolled in Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Beginning Brass, Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Concert Choir, Chorale and Chorus. Music Boosters plan, organize and implement fund-raisers to benefit both music programs at Elizabeth Seton High School, make decisions about how to spend the funds raised, and provide parental support for band and choral activities. Specifically, they help with music/instrument purchases, festival registration fees, transportation, equipment, instrument repair, music/voice lessons, and music-related expenses.
Dress Garment Bags: Garment bags to cover performance dresses are available for purchase to students in the choral and instrumental programs. Please click here to download the order form.
Dance Marathon: The Dance Marathon is the main fundraiser for the Music Department and is held annually in November.
