Welcome to the SCSBOA

The Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association is a non-profit organization whose active membership is drawn primarily from educational institutions: elementary schools, junior high/middle schools, senior high schools, colleges and universities. Additional membership includes students and others (private instructors, business establishments) who are active in the musical community.

The Association is dedicated to enriching the cultural environment by helping all students develop a greater appreciation of music, providing the means for exploring both vocational and non-vocational opportunities in music, raising performance standards, and improving learning techniques.

SCSBOA Scholarship Campaign: $8 for 80

2017 marks the 80th anniversary of the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association! Together, we comprise one of the largest music education associations in the country! What better way to celebrate than the gift of giving?! Over the past 80 years, the SCSBOA has given thousands of dollars in scholarship monies back to students. We want to continue that tradition!

In celebration of our 80th anniversary, would you be willing to donate a simple $8 donation to the SCSBOA? If every SCSBOA member did this, we would bring in over $8,000 to continue this amazing program.

All donations are tax deductible and you will receive an email with tax identification information upon receipt of your donation. I know there are many causes and organizations which you can give to, but giving back to an organization that supports what we do each and every day is something special! Can we count you in?

With sincere appreciation,

Neil Anderson
