Fine Arts Boosters' Mission and Vision

The Orangeville music department serves Orangeville students K-12th grade in music education through elementary music education, 5th-12th bands, 6th-12th choirs, and the yearly spring theater production.

22/23 Fundraising Update

Hello Orangeville Elementary Families!

To end the year, I wanted to provide a rundown of all the funds raised this year, as well as provide you with a list of items that have been or will be purchased with these funds. We believe transparency is important to show you what your contributions are truly providing for our students.

To date, we have raised $2173.25. With these funds we have purchased new music for the elementary music classes and the new elementary music curriculum. We are working with Mr. Zier to help purchase more music and needed items for the upcoming school year to benefit the whole music department.

There are many large projects that we hope to raise funds for in the coming year to provide more opportunities and learning for the music students in the Orangeville School District.

Spring Music Program Videos

This year the Orangeville Music Department had virtual spring concerts for the K-12th grade Bands and Choirs. In doing this, there was opportunity to showcase so fun percussion ensembles and combine different groups of students that wouldn't have normally been able to perform together.

Below is the YouTube link to these videos.

Thank you, Mr. Zier, for all the hard work putting this together and always finding creative ways to showcase the music students of the Orangeville School District.
