Over 1,000 students each year enroll in orchestra, jazz, band, choral and Rockette programs from the fourth to 12th grades. Bay Village Schools’ music program has been named one of the "Best 100 Music Communities in America" since 2003!

Bay Music Boosters is a volunteer, nonprofit organization established to support and promote Bay Village Public Schools’ fine music education program. This year, Bay Music Boosters is having their Door-to-Door Membership Drive on Wednesday, Aug. 17, from 5-8 p.m.

Bay High School students who are in chorus, marching band, orchestra and Rockettes will be going door to door on Wednesday asking Bay Village residents to support them through purchasing a membership or by making any monetary donation. All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax-deductible.

Some of last year's funding was used to purchase new flags, jackets and poms for the Rockettes; new show choir dresses for chorus; and mellophones, marching baritones, tubas and additional uniforms for the marching band. They also provided funds for contest fees, instrument repairs, instrumental technician fees for the various programs; and funded college and summer camp scholarships to select participating students.

The membership drive is the main fundraiser that helps support all the wonderful music programs offered throughout all of Bay schools. Chorus, marching band and orchestra students will be dressed in their blue polos and the Rockettes will be in their uniforms during the membership drive. If you are not home, a membership form will be left in your door. The address to mail in your donation is listed on the bottom of the membership form. Or, if you prefer, you can visit the Bay Music Boosters website at to access the membership flyer and/or make an online donation via PayPal.

If you have any questions, please email Bay Music Boosters president, Susan Evans, at

We hope you are able to support Bay students and this great organization! Thank you for your support!
