Dear Community Business Leader:

The Madison Southern High School Band Boosters are seeking regular sponsorships for the 2016-2017 school/fiscal year to help promote this Fall’s Marching Season and next Spring’s Concert Season. Madison Southern’s band students are some of the brightest and best, and the band is growing each year. For the past 7 years, we have successfully hosted the Kentucky Music Education Association (KMEA) East Regional Quarterfinal Competition for 1A and 4A bands. This year, we will again be hosting the Quarterfinal competition in October for the 8th year.

We are excited to announce that we will also be hosting a regular season competition at Madison Southern on September 17, 2016, the Eagle Classic. Hosting these competitions is a great honor, and should bring tourism and money into the Berea and Richmond communities as we play hosts to bands from around the state during this all day event.  For 2015-2016, Madison Southern Bands also fielded a Winter Guard team for the first time in a decade. Their inaugural show, Candlelight, took first place in their division in every competition, including Finals!

Currently, the cost of running the band program is approximately $1200 per student, per year. While we have contributions from the Madison County Board of Education and ask each family to pay a Fair Share Contribution, with the status of the state budget cuts we find our students fund-raising more each year. In Madison Southern’s marching band program, approximately half (50%) of the students participate in the free/reduced lunch program and it is often a strain on these families to pay their full contribution. That family’s inability to pay never results in a student being unable to participate in the marching band or concert band classes.   Research has shown numerous positive benefits music has on a youth’s life. As citizens, community members, and business persons, we hope you will support the many band and music programs through your sponsorships as an investment in our youth and your future employees.
