Welcome to the Johnson City Music Booster Club

Music Booster Club Objectives

The objectives of the Music Booster Club of Johnson City High School are to assist the Director of Music; to promote the development and growth of the Music Department; to aid in the activities of these groups, and to assist in the musical and artistic growth of the students who participate in them.

The Music Booster Club awards three scholarships each year to graduating seniors, pays the registration fees for the District students who participate in the New York State School Music Association's (NYSSMA) annual solo and ensemble festivals, and buys the medals for the students who qualify for them.

The Club participates in many other activities. It supports all musical groups by coordinating fundraisers and chaperoning local and long distance trips. The Club assists the Marching Band with the upkeep of uniforms and by making lunches available between rehearsals and competitions. Members of the Music Booster Club play an important role in the annual musical by helping with costumes and makeup, building sets, providing and serving food backstage, and producing the program. Booster Club members also serve as volunteers at the NYSSMA festivals, at concession stands, and at booths at Johnson City's annual Field Days.

Any person interested in supporting the objectives of the Organization and its activities is eligible for membership. There are no dues; membership at the monthly meetings is not mandatory (although everyone is welcome to attend). What is needed is assistance with any of the activities. Some members are very busy during Marching Band season, others are generous in providing refreshments for the cast, crew, and pit of the musical, and some members work a shift or two at a concession stand. One of the strengths of this organization is the number of people who volunteer as their time and conditions permit.

Johnson City has an outstanding music program and the support of parents, grandparents, and other community members is an essential component in the Club’s assistance with this success.
