Welcome to the Straub Middle School Music Boosters website. The Music Boosters is a non-profit, volunteer club which includes parents and teachers supporting the Music Department for Straub Middle School in Salem, Oregon. Our parents are dedicated in assisting the entire department with fundraising to support music in our school. The music department consists of Band, Choir, and Orchestra.
Just wanted to send a thank you out to all parents, friends and families who helped make our Soiree a huge success this year! We raised over $8,000 that will go towards many good uses for the music programs here at Straub. Our Solo and Ensemble event was also a great success. This was a great opportunity for the students to perform and receive quality feedback.
We worked with Egan Gardens to sell geraniums, flower baskets and gift cards this Spring. Thanks to all the parents and volunteers that helped us collect a net profit of $1,975.25!
The West Salem Concert Band Camp will be held July 25-29, 2016 at West Salem High School in Salem, OR. This camp is designed to give creative middle school and younger high school students an opportunity to develop and refine their musicianship through a fun and comprehensive band camp. Students receive master classes on their instrument, sectionals, jazz band, and concert band full ensemble experiences.
Next meeting is Tuesday, September 6, 2016 at 7:15 PM in the band room Straub Middle School.
