About this fundraiser

WE DID IT AGAIN! The Beloit Memorial Jazz Orchestra has been selected as one of only fifteen bands to participate in the 29th Annual Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Festival in New York City, May, 2024.

REPRESENTING OUR COMMUNITY! It is an honor to return to New York and represent Beloit and our school district. It is also an opportunity to increase our knowledge of jazz history with site visits and tours, perform on the Jazz at Lincoln Center stage, and experience the Big Apple.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! This is a special opportunity for us to travel to the East Coast and compete with the best, but it is also very expensive to fly and house students, chaperones, teachers, and their instruments for five days in Manhattan.

We have to raise $56,000 in the next six weeks to fund this trip…

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP :

1. Make a donation on this website!

2. Come hear us play and donate at our special event:

Details coming soon on our Facebook Page BMHS Jazz Band or check back here!

We are proud to represent Beloit and we are grateful for your support!
