  • Providing volunteers and coordinating support for fundraisers for the traveling performing groups;
  • Providing a dress rehearsal dinner and volunteer support for the spring musical, including help with costumes, makeup, sets, and the playbill;
  • Providing support for the All-County and NYSSMA festivals held in the F-M district; and
  • Sponsoring several student awards, as well as a scholarship each year to a graduating senior who plans to pursue a career in the arts.
