You Sing! I Sing! We All Sing for Ice Cream! New Providence Music Boosters to Hold Annual Ice Cream Social
Thursday, March 7, 2013 • 2:17pm
On March 27, 2013 at 6:45 p.m., feast your eyes, ears and taste buds at the New Providence Music Boosters Ice Cream Social. This annual event is held as part of the March celebration of “Music in Our Schools Month” also known as MIOSM.
Across the nation, MIOSM highlights music education in our schools. Chorus, band and orchestra performances in the schools and for outside audiences are a large part of the month-long focus on music education.
In New Providence, MIOSM celebrations include a special one-night-only concert held on March 27 in the New Providence High School Auditorium. The stars of the show are New Providence students in Grades 5-8 from the New Providence Middle School, Allan W. Roberts Elementary and Salt Brook Elementary schools. These students will perform a “Pops” concert featuring the respective choruses, bands and orchestras.
As a fundraiser held in conjunction with the concert, the New Providence Music Boosters Ice Cream Social is the cherry on top, so to speak. In the New Providence High School Cafeteria, Zita’s delicious ice cream and toppings will be scooped and served for concert attendees. Proceeds raised will be donated directly to benefit the school music programs.
If you would like to join the festivities, $4 tickets for the Ice Cream Social can be purchased online at https://www.register.communitypass.com/newprovidence (select NP Music Boosters after you log in), or at the door.
For those unacquainted with the New Providence Music Boosters, it is and organization comprised of parents and friends whose purpose is to support the New Providence Music Department. Their goal is to enhance the music education experience of every child in the school system in grades Pre-K–12. Money raised from the activities of the NP Music Boosters through membership, donations, Market Day and annual fundraisers such as the Ice Cream Social are donated to the NP School District to supplement the Music Department’s budget.
