    DATE CHANGE:  Save your Stuff and Save the Date - Saturday, April  20th, 2019

    The Annual Eckstein Band Rummage Sale is Saturday, April 20th, 2019. We need your donations to make this event a success. Please set aside your household items, books, music, furniture sporting equipment, gently used clothing, and more. On Friday, April 7th, bring your donations to the Eckstein Cafeteria between 1:30 and 4 p.m.

    Mark your calendar and come to the Rummage Sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. There will be great deals to be had, baked goods, and music from our very own jazz combos.

    Monies raised from the rummage sale go directly to the Eckstein’s music program and are used to help offset some of the cost of off-campus music performances, repair damaged instruments and provide scholarship to children who needs assistance. Our goal is to make music accessible to everyone.

    We will be recruiting volunteers to help with setup on Friday afternoon and to help at the sale on Saturday. Watch for a signup announcement in March.

    If you have any questions, please contact TBD


    Your Support Provides Wonderful Things!

    The goal of the Eckstein Band Program is to provide the highest quality experience for all of our band students. Our philosophy is that no student will be denied the opportunity to participate in an activity due to personal lack of funds.

    Our community supports the daily operational needs of all the Eckstein bands and vocal groups. In addition, we replace and repair a limited amount of band-owned and student-used instruments.

    Contributions of time, financial support and musical instruments help bridge the gap between the band's annual budget and their actual needs.Our success is dependent upon our community and we are extremely grateful for all of your contributions!
