Become an official Member of the Band!
$70,000 of additional Band Program funding is needed every year to supplement funds from the City Schools of Decatur, band dues paid by families, grants, business sponsorships, and valuable individual donors like you!* This pays for program areas including sheet music, instrument and uniform repair, music instruction, and competition and trip fees.*
The Band program serves all music students who participate in the two concert bands, ensembles, and the marching band including color guard.
Our needs include:
1. Replacing old, unrepairable large scale instruments including 2 Tubas - $5,000 each, + 1 French Horn $3,000, Vibraphone $5000, Contrabass Clarinet - $10,000, Marching band instruments - $10,000
2. Purchasing new Marching Band and Color Guard uniforms too worn out to wear – around $150 per uniform
3. Provide scholarships to ensure that every band student is funded for special trips and competitions budgeted at $5,000
