York Music Boosters


  • Congrats to all of the performers, planners, and helpers involved with Fine Arts Week and York Live 2023!! March 6-10: WHAT A WEEK! A few video clips from York Live, below. And, check out This Is York's coverage of FAW - here. Big shoutout to Mr. Gemkow for another fantastic week of events.
  • We are "dreaming grand" at YMB with the launch of 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.
  • Make plans to attend an upcoming show featuring our talented York performing arts students. The full schedule for the 2022-23 school year is available here. You also can view videos of the outstanding performances by York's choirbandorchestra and dance student that helped close out the 2022 calendar year on a high note.
  • Become a member and supporter of York Music Boosters, the parent group that helps band, orchestra, choir, music production and dance students and the York Performing Arts program in so many ways — financial support, awards, uniform distribution, concert hosting and staffing, and more.

  • Did you know? Students can earn money for school-sponsored trips through YMB's fundraising programs. In fact, many are using escrow funds to help offset the costs of the upcoming orchestra and choir trips. Learn more about our student escrow program.
