Apply for Orchestra Fee and Expenses Scholarship

The mission of the Austin High Orchestra Booster Club is to support every student who participates in the orchestra program, or who would like to. We recognize that the cost of participating isn’t easily absorbed by every family, and we’re here to help. We offer scholarships to help cover the fees and expenses related to the Austin High Orchestra program. If you would like to apply, please fill out the AHS Orchestra Scholarship Request Form.

Food Survey

Complete the food preferences survey to let us know how many students have vegetarian, gluten free, or other dietary restrictions. Help us plan meals before concerts or other activities.

Early Practice Protocol

Remind your student to sign the attendance sheet so they receive full credit for showing up!

Affordable Music Lessons at School

All new and returning orchestra students are encouraged to take music lessons to help them prepare and grow. Affordable music lessons are available with private teachers, who come to the school. Click here for contact information for the instructors.

New Orchestra Club

Sign up here to express your interest! The Orchestra Student Council is forming a new orchestra club, a branch of the orchestra program! Anyone interested in going the extra mile in orchestra, has a piece they would like to play, or is interested in small ensemble playing, this club is for you. The club will have performances periodically during and outside of standard orchestra concerts. The club will meet on Tuesdays after school until 5:30 pm.

Orchestra Dues

Like all high school arts and athletics programs, the AHS orchestra program has dues that are required for all students to help cover the cost of concert uniforms, music binders, and more. The dues are $175.00. You can make checks payable to Austin High Orchestra or pay online using this link. Through the parent boosters, we offer scholarships, so please contact Mrs. Solis if you have concerns.
