All proceeds benefit our over 800 students in the Alton School District band and orchestra program, elementary through high school. About 40% of our students in band and orchestra use a school district instrument, and ABOB provides the funds to repair and maintain all of these instruments. ABOB also provides scholarships for private lessons and music camps and funds the Alton M.S. Schumann Chamber, Alton H.S. Symphonic Orchestra, and Marching 100's fees and travel to competitions and festivals. It is events like our Dinner Auction, which helps ABOB meet its budget in order to give our students many outstanding musical opportunities.
For over 60 years ABOB has supported our music program and we are extremely fortunate to have parents and a community who are passionate about making sure all students in the Alton School District have access to an outstanding music education.
