about the impa (Music Boosters)
The Instrumental Music Parents Association Music Boosters (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.
The IMPA Music Boosters generally meet during the school year on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m., with some exceptions. All parents of students in any of the instrumental music programs are welcome to attend. Please see the calendar to confirm the meeting dates.
