Hi, we're the Modesto High School Band Boosters and we're proud to introduce our newly appointed Band and Orchestra teacher at Modesto High School, Matt Cover. He is a proud Modesto High graduate from 1987!

Modesto High was founded in 1883 and is the oldest High School in Modesto, CA. It has a rich and glorious history when it comes to music. The first conductor was Frank Mancini, a true "Music Man" to Modesto, CA. He was inducted into the National Band Associaition's Hall of Fame in 1994, bringing added prestige to our school and community. National Band Assoc. Hall of Fame - Mancini

If everyone who has ever played in a school band or orchestra, or anyone who sees the value in music education in schools gave $1-5, we would have more than enough money to start the revitialization process; repair instruments, pay additional travel expenses, pay entry fees for competitions and festivals... there's just a lot of fundraising for our students to try to accomplish - and with your support we will be successful!

Hello all! At this time of year, the Modesto High Music Department would like to thank all of our donors for their support. With a little publicity in the local paper, the donations starting really coming in. So far we have raised almost $7000. The kids are working hard too, fundraising constantly; selling candy, tamales, Tupperware, spaghetti dinners, etc... It's a slow process, but one we're committed to doing.

We have a concert on Tuesday at 6:30pm. You are all invited to attend. The Band and Orchestra will perform. The concert will be in the main auditorium. We hope to see you there!

Thank you! And Merry Christmas!!!

The support in our community of our music program at Modesto High School has been overwhelming! Plus the wonderful article in the Modesto Bee supporting our efforts has really given our campaign another shot in the arm. Our total climbs a little every day. Several people have even called to chat and give encouragement... We thank you very much!

$1 to support a proud music program is better than spending that same money to buy soda.

Thank you, Mr. Cover, for teaching me to play the clarinet and guitar and for teaching my sister how to play the flute.
