JAZZ NIGHT INFO! 

Great news! Jazz Night 2021 will offer a live in person performance opportunity for students and families. The 2021 Jazz Band Concert will be held on April 9th in the Mason High School Auditorium and will feature MMS 7th & 8th Grade Jazz Bands and MHS Jazz Bands 1 & 2. For many of these students, this will be their 1st performance in front of an audience in more than a year! The event will feature 2 performances:

As part of our COVID-19 safety protocol, we are limiting each  band's audience to 2 family members per student and will be clearing the auditorium in between concerts. 

Two tickets per student will be distributed in class to students whose families complete this form by no later than Friday March 26th as it includes the COVID-19 policy agreement for the event. Click here to request tickets and complete the Audience Participation Agreement.

AFTER PROM HELP NEEDED

Parent volunteers are needed to help plan and organize the band’s After Prom Area.  This is a fun opportunity for anyone who loves to plan parties, decorate, be creative, or really any type of worker bee.  We already have a basic theme. We simply need a few more people to help bring it to life.  It promises to be a fun, low stress way to do something nice for our Seniors this year.  It is also a great opportunity to socialize with and get to know some other band parents.  If you are interested in helping with the planning process, please contact Kim Bishop at   secretary@masonbandboosters.com  We will also be in need of helpers the day of the event so please be on the lookout for a Sign-Up that will be sent out in the near future.  In the meantime, you can mark April 30th on your calendar for After Prom.  Thank you!!
