MARCH UPDATE:  We are full of gratitude!  The generosity of your donations has helped us reach our fundraising goal for the 2023 Wind Ensemble & Chamber Orchestra Tour of Ireland. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to the tour fund, attended our 9th Annual Bands at the Broad benefit concert, donated items for our silent auction and wine raffle, and volunteered to make this all possible.  Thank you for supporting music education and this opportunity that will surely deepen our students’ love for and commitment to music and the arts.

The Samohi Band program has planned an Ireland performance tour for the combined Samohi Wind Ensemble and Samohi Chamber Orchestra in the spring of 2023. We are seeking assistance to raise the funds needed to cover expenses for participating students whose families cannot afford the cost of the tour. This is the first time in decades that Samohi Band and Orchestra students will tour together. We think it’s a wonderful way to ring in a new era of Samohi Music tours.

Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
SMAPA-Samohi Band is part of the Santa Monica Arts Parents Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, Tax ID 95-2563339
