Sponsorship Opportunities

Dear Community Business Leader:

The Madison Southern High School Band Boosters are seeking regular sponsorships for the 2017-2018 school/fiscal year to help promote this Fall’s Marching Season and next Spring’s Concert Season. For the past 9 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 on October 21st for the 9th year.

We are also excited to announce once again for our second time, we will be hosting our very own Madison Southern Eagle Classic on September 16th. Hosting these competitions is a great honor, and will bring tourism and money into the Berea and Richmond communities. Bands from around the state will be here all day for these events.  This year Madison Southern Bands also fielded a Winter Guard team for the Second time in a decade. With their show called, Strung Together, the team became the Tri-State Marching Arts Scholastic Regional A-2 Champions. We are very proud of this! Madison Southern band students are some of the brightest and best. Many of our students take part in different types of honor programs.

Currently, the cost of running the music 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 and national budget cuts we find our students fund-raising more each year. In Madison Southern’s marching band program, approximately 60% of the students participate in the free/reduced lunch program and it is often a strain on these families to pay their full contribution. A 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 owners, we hope you will support the many band and music programs through your sponsorships as an investment in our youth and your future employees.
