Life is Like a Box of Chocolates ...

HRHS Orchestra Families,

The Booster Club has purchased boxes of chocolate bars for one of this year's fundraising opportunities.  This fundraiser will work as follows:

  • Purchase a box of 60 chocolate bars for $60 (cash or check made out to HRHS Orchestra), $30 will be immediately added to your student's fundraising account
  • Sell the chocolate bars for $1 each and re-coup your $60 investment
  • Purchase another box for $60 and repeat as many times as you like while supplies last, $30 out of each $60 purchase goes into your student's account

If you sell each chocolate bar for $1, you will break even and your student will earn $30 in fundraising money for each box.

You will have an opportunity to buy a chocolate bar to sample for yourself at Wednesday's concert, at which time you can also purchase one or more boxes to join this fundraiser and immediately put money into your student's account.  If you are interested in taking advantage of this fundraiser, please bring $60 cash or a check for $60 made out to HRHS Orchestra to Wednesday's concert, we will have boxes available to purchase on the spot and take home with you.

2016 HRHS Orchestra Play-A-Thon Reminder


It's almost time for the 10th Annual HRHS Orchestra Play-A-Thon. The 2016 Play-A-Thon will be held on Saturday, October 1st, from 11:00am - 4:30pm at the HRHS Orchestra rooms and auditorium. Students from both the Chamber and Symphony Orchestras will be playing for 5 hours to improve technique, music performance, pitch, rhythm and receive rehearsal time for their upcoming concert and upcoming honor orchestra auditions. Stage etiquette and concert expectations will also be addressed.
This year’s Play-A-Thon is structured a little differently. The aim of the Play-A-Thon this year is to raise funds to benefit the HRHS Orchestra program. We have partnered with the SNAP fundraising program to raise money for specific needs in the orchestra program. SNAP is an easy email donation platform we are using this year. We ask all student to participate either through SNAP or through donation page found on the website. We look to purchase items from the Director’s Wish List and enable a scholarship fund to benefit students that may need help in participating in specific activities throughout the year.
You will see the Orchestra Director’s Wish List linked on the orchestra website. Items include new technology, class sets of music books and other items that will benefit all of the Orchestra students. Please make donations and fee checks payable to: HRHS Orchestra Boosters Donation money is due by October 7th. Remember, anyone can support the HRHS Orchestra Play-A-Thon (Family, friends, neighbors, teachers, businesses, coaches, private teachers, DYAO, CYSO, Youth Orchestras, South Suburban Symphony, or local orchestras or organizations).
A Play-A-Thon fee of $5 for each student will cover lunch and snacks as well as teambuilding activity costs. Students will pay at check-in and will need to be checked in by 11:00am on Saturday, October 1st. Names of all who participate will be added to a Door Prize Jar and there will hourly door prize drawings.
Volunteers helping out with Play-A-Thon will be contacted with more specific information about their participation. The schedule for Saturday is as follows.

Orchestra Scholarship Donations

HRHS Orchestra Families,

Each year the Orchestra Boosters provides supplementary scholarship funding to help students who are in need of some extra assistance to help pay for fees, private lessons or to participate in other Orchestra activities.

Anyone wishing to donate to this scholarship fund may do so by going to the Friends of the Orchestra tab on the HRHS Orchestra website. The DONATE button is located towards the bottom of the page. Checks made out to HRHS Booster Club may also be given to Mr. Woodworth or sent to the Boosters' treasurer, Kim Smith-Gross, indicating that it is for the scholarship fund.

Any amount you can chip in makes a difference. Thanks for giving this your consideration.

SNAP Fundraising

Orchestra Parents,

Please take a moment to read about one of this year's most significant fundraising efforts.

We will be kicking off our Snap! Raise campaign this week. Snap is an online donation campaign that allows our program to receive donations from our networks and supporters. Snap uses the power of email, text, and social media with a safe, fun, and interactive approach. All we ask is that each parent/guardian help their student gather 20 or more email addresses of their biggest fans. Please review the info below to see just how much of an impact this campaign can have for our students.

*Your contacts are strictly private and protected, and never sold or shared.*

Snap Fact Overview: 
1. Safe and Protected - Snap! Raise is the safest online donation campaign available. All data is private and never redistributed. Your student’s information on the Snap page is less detailed than what would be on a team website roster.
2. Online donation platform - Reach potential donors via email, social media, and text to ask them to support our program and visit the page, where they can seamlessly donate.
3. Email Strategy - All supporters will receive a receipt for their gift that is tax deductible, included with a personalized thank you from the student. There are three reminder emails sent to donors, with an option to unsubscribe. 
4. Network - Snap’s platform and process is what makes their campaigns so successful. It allows an extensive reach across communities by providing options to connect with multiple donors and their social networks, maximizing our raising efforts.  

Check out the following Local Example of a successful fundraising campaign:

    Superior Ratings at State-Wide CHSAA Competition

    CONGRATULATIONS to all of the HRHS Orchestra and Wind Ensemble Members for their unheard of performance and honors at the state-wide CHSAA competition this week!

    We had three ensembles perform -- Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, and Full Orchestra. All three ensembles received a straight sweep of Superior ratings. It is very rare for even one top ensemble to receive a straight superior rating. I have not heard of another school in the state accomplish this feat with three ensembles.

    Huge shout out to Kevin Larsen and the Wind Ensemble for their awesome support and performance at contest, we couldn't have done it with out you. Again, congratulations to all our Symphony and Chamber students on their outstanding performance! Bravo!!!

    Transitioning Treasurer

    Thanks to all who participated in the online voting process to help us select a new Orchestra Boosters Treasurer for 2016-2017. By unanimous vote, we will move forward with transitioning Kim Gross into the role of Treasurer.

    THANK YOU to MELANIE HALL,  who has served as our Treasurer for the past two years. We appreciate your service to the Orchestra! Melanie's help has been invaluable, and she has made a positive impact on our entire program through her service. We look forward to the contributions she will continue to make to the Orchestra Boosters as a veteran parent and Booster member.

    Private Lesson Registration Due January 22

    HRHS Orchestra is excited to launch a pilot program offering private lessons during our ensemble classes (Symphony and Chamber) during February, March and April.

Through the gifts of some generous donors, we also have funds available for students in financial need so that everyone has an opportunity to participate. Contact Mr. Woodworth for details on financial aid.

    Private lessons can help students:
    • Have more fun on their instruments
    • Perform with greater confidence
    • Learn new techniques and skills on the instrument
    • Play more advanced music
    • Prepare for any auditions
    • Learn how to practice independently
    • Learn new solo music

    Lesson Details:
    • Each Lesson is 1 on 1 instruction between an area professional musician/ teacher and your student. 
    • There will be two options for receiving lessons: Weekly (4 per month) or every other week (2 per month). 
    • Each lesson will be 30 minutes in length. 
    • Each student and parent will commit via contract to the entire pilot program of three month 
    • Each lesson will cost $25 paid to the private instructor by cash or check at the beginning of each month for the entire month's worth of lessons. 
    • Student accounts may be used as reimbursement for lesson payments as long as the student account has a positive balance and all fees have been paid in full.
    Click here for full details, and contact Mr. Woodworth if you still have questions.
