York Music Boosters
- Click here to join and support York Music Boosters this school year. Our parent group provides support to York's band, orchestra, choir, music production and dance students, as well as the York Performing Arts program, in many ways — financial support, awards, uniform distribution, concert hosting and staffing, and much more. See the "Who We Are" section below for details about YMB.
This year's Greens Sale has begun and runs through October 27! York Performing Arts students sell beautiful, high-quality holiday wreaths and centerpieces delivered just in time for the holiday season. Profits are held in individual student escrow accounts and used to defray the costs of future school-based trips and travel. New this year: the convenience of web-based purchases. Learn more about the Greens Sale and how to participate.
Make plans to attend an upcoming show featuring our talented York Performing Arts students. The schedule for the 2023-24 school year is available here.
- We are "dreaming grand" at YMB and have undertaken a joint fundraising project with Elmhurst Music Boosters. Our goal is to help raise funds for a new professional, concert-worthy piano in the York auditorium. The current piano is more than 100 years old and considered well past its usable life and beyond repair. Click here to learn more.
