Music in the Parks:

Thank you to all our volunteers.  We've already raised $12,000.00, but we still need your help with the next 4 weekends.

Please take a moment to sign up online with the following links. 

  • www.volunteers.mhsmusic.org
  • We're asking each family to work at least 1 shift/day (only 3-4 hours)
  • It's an easy way to support the music program, and a great way to meet other music parents.

We need our music students to work 1-3 days each.
Students can also use these direct links to sign up
