Who are the Music Patrons?The Music Patrons association primarily consists of parents of students participating in the music programs in the High School and Middle School. Membership in the association is automatic for all parents with participating students. In addition to encouraging and assisting the music programs within the school system, the organization oversees and assumes responsibility for raising funds for a variety of projects in the music departments. The organization supports students by helping to plan activities and by attending, volunteering and chaperoning various events. Money needs to be raised since the school district funds are not sufficient to cover the costs of our entire music program. In addition, the Music Patrons, a non-profit organization, also provides scholarships to graduating seniors interested in pursuing their studies in music beyond the high school level.Please consider investing some time becoming a parent volunteer, every minute of your time makes a difference. You don’t need to chair a committee, or be an officer. There are always openings for Chaperones, Equipment Handlers (known as "Grunts"), working a snack table, or helping with a fundraiser. It is a very rewarding experience, and time well spent . The Music Staff in Upper Moreland is second to none, and we in the UMMP are proud to serve them in any way possible.
