Welcome to the Verona Music Parents Association! 
The VMPA is a parent volunteer organization that provides support to the VHS music program (marching band, color guard, concert band, jazz band, choir and jazz choir).  All parents of VHS music students are automatically members of the VMPA and we are looking forward to welcoming you (or welcoming you back) to the VHS music family.  

The dates for 2015 Band Camp are Saturday, August 22 - Thursday, August 27.  Band Camp takes place at VHS and typically lasts from 9am-9pm, with a 1 - hour lunch break and a 1 -1/2 hour dinner break.  All marching band and color guard students participate in Band Camp.

Please find the full summer marching band schedule on the music department website (veronamusic.org).

The VMPA will have the first meeting of the season on Sunday, August 23th at 1:15 pm with a 1:00 pm reception for freshman or first time music families in the VHS Cafeteria.  All music parents are encouraged to attend.  At that time, we will distribute important information, vote on our new budget and discuss our fundraisers. Our major fundraiser, the Festival of Bands, will be held on Sunday, September 20th.  General information packets will be distributed to each family at this meeting.

VMPA correspondence is primarily done through email.  At your earliest convenience, please send your preferred family email contact to veronamusicparents@gmail.com.  If you have any questions that I might be able to help with, please feel free to contact me, or any current VMPA member.  

Thanks and welcome to VHS music!
