About the IMPA
The Instrumental Music Parents Association (also known as the IMPA) supports all Instrumental Music programs and directors at MVHS through fundraising and volunteer assistance. The IMPA primarily funds outside clinicians with specific knowledge/expertise who instruct students in orchestra, color guard, concert band, jazz band, marching band, and percussion. The IMPA also provides funding for the online presence including Smugmug and the website, and special needs of the program. All parents of instrumental music students are automatically members of the Association and are encouraged to participate in the IMPA and attend its meetings.
Meetings - The Instrumental Music Parents Association meets during the school year on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., in Packard Hall, except for January. All parents of students in any of the instrumental music programs are welcome to attend. Please see the calendar to confirm the meeting dates.
IMPA eNews - This email service distributes news flashes from the instrumental music department. Late breaking news and items of interest to all instrumental music families are sent via email to IMPA eNews subscribers.
eLists - In addition to IMPA eNews, there is an eList for each Instrumental Music class. These email lists provide late-breaking information about competitions and concerts for each class. It is absolutely critical for Marching Band and Color Guard parents and students to sign up. It is very important for other music classes as well. There is also an elist for Music Alumni for occasional news from the music department and send messages to your music alumni friends.
