Orchestra Boosters

Welcome Orchestra Parents!

The Austin High Orchestra program wouldn’t be able to offer all of the amazing opportunities it does without the support of wonderful, involved parents like you.

Please consider attending the meetings, held by the elected AHOP board. They occur one evening each month during the school year, with one or two ramp-up meetings during the summer. You can learn about different opportunities to get involved or just learn more about what’s happening behind the scenes of the program so that you can better support your student.

Created as a Booster Club in 1987, the Austin High Orchestra Parents (AHOP) has become the driving force behind communication and cooperation between the orchestra director, orchestra students, and orchestra parents. The AHOP

  • provides special project and performance materials
  • coordinates volunteers for events
  • organizes and operates fundraisers
  • manages the weekly newsletter
  • researches opportunities for trips and activities
  • uses funds to pay for necessary items such as instrument repairs, end of year banquet, and many other projects and initiatives in support of the Austin High School Orchestra program
