WHY DO WE NEED TO FUNDRAISE?

In order for the members of the Western Branch Orchestras to have an optimum experience and have every opportunity to be successful, we need monetary support.  Here are a few ways we use money fundraised through the WBOPA:

  • Annual banquet
  • Concert programs
  • Concert receptions
  • District Orchestra Assessment fees
  • Guest artists and clinicians
  • New instruments
  • New music
  • Senior Scholarships
  • Shoulder rests and rock stops
  • Spring trip
  • Snacks for rehearsals/trips
  • Tuners and rosin
  • Virginia Band and Orchestra Directors Association Annual Fee
  • and more!
