    Please visit our Big Sky Band Parents Organization Page to learn how you can support and donate to our dedicated, compassionate, and creative musicians.

    The Big Sky Band Parents is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our job is to support the high school bands in every way so that they enjoy a successful year. We provide meals to students at band functions, refreshments at concerts, coordinate fundraisers, and crew volunteer opportunities. Meetings are held on the second Monday of the month (August-June) at 7:00 PM in the band room.

    Next year's primary fundraising target is to help every student travel to Hawaii in March, 2022. We also have a Wish List that always needs attention.
