The MHS Choral Department Country Breakfast is our largest fundraiser of the year and also one of the favorites. Choir students (and sometimes family members!) sing their favorite style of music, some as solos but many as ensembles as well. We get to here from all the choirs singing songs we don't typically get to hear them sing. It's a wonderful day of folk, country, pop, Broadway and more!
And while the students are singing, everyone else is eating! We serve all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, eggs, fruit, yogurt and beverages.
In addition, we have had other activities happening during the event like silent auctions, quick bread sales and other giveaways. Who knows what 2019 may hold!
It takes all families and students to put on this great event. Whether you enjoy time in the kitchen, selling tickets, or mingling the crowds serving coffee or pancakes, we need each of you! As we get closer to our event, we'll reach out to see how you may want to help.
It is important for everyone to understand how impactful every sponsorship, donation, and ticket sale makes to our program. The 2018 Country Breakfast netted over $8400 for our choral program! These dollars will help to fund many things including transportation to the various choral trips during the year, scholarships to summer music programs and equipment needs that sometimes quietly benefit our program. In 2017-18, for example, we purchased almost $1000 worth of new and replacement performance attire and new racks for their storage, something long overdue. We work very hard to balance our funds between needs of our current students and the long-term benefit of the program.
Again, thank you for your continued support of your kids and the Middleton Choral Program.
