York Music Boosters

YMB NEWS ​​​

  • One of the many ways that YMB provides a boost to York Performing Arts students is through its grant and scholarship programs. April 14 is the deadline to apply for a summer school scholarship to take part in all kinds of different camps — virtual, local or long distance. Ninth- through 11th-grade students— currently enrolled in band, orchestra, choir, music production or dance — are eligible for scholarship assistance. Learn more.
  • Thanks to some very generous donations and your participation in several Eat and Earn fundraisers earlier this year, York Music Boosters is pleased to report that we’ve made considerable strides on "Dream Grand: The Piano Project." We’ve now raised more than $17,000! We are tracking progress by piano key, with a goal of filling all the keys and reaching the $22,000 mark. Dream Grand is a joint fundraising initiative with Elmhurst Music Boosters. Also, a note to our Dream Grand donors: Please be on the lookout from us for a $25 Elmhurst City Centre gift card. This is in lieu of getting a voucher for YMB merchandise. We will not be conducting merchandise sales this spring. We do plan to hold a merchandise sale in the fall.
  • York Music Boosters supports York Performing Arts in many ways. Leading that work is our volunteer board, and we have several open positions that need to be filled for the year ahead — including in areas such as fundraising, hospitality, and assistant escrow treasurer. We hope you consider joining our dedicated group of volunteers. We support band, orchestra, choir, music production, and dance students, as well as the amazing programs and opportunities that York provides in the arts. Please contact YMB if you're interested in joining the volunteer board
