Holiday Concert Program Ad and Booster Sales

Post date: Oct 16, 2011 11:43:31 PM

Each year the Hunterdon Central Orchestra Parents Group (OPG) sponsors the Annual Holiday Concert performed by the HCRHS Instrumental Music Programs. It is a magical evening of music and festivities that serve as a perfect kick-off to the holiday season. The concert is usually filmed by HCRHS TV and may be shown on your cable provider’s local educational access channel throughout the year.

This year’s concert will take place on Thursday, December 1, 2011 and will feature:

  • Musical Performances by the Freshman String Orchestra, Freshman Concert Band, Principles of Percussion, HCRHS Fiddle Club and Select Full Orchestra

  • Opportunity for portrait sittings with Mike Schwartz Photography

  • Tricky Tray Auction

  • Snacks, baked goods, beverages and other concession items

  • A professionally produced concert program

All proceeds from the event help to fund the scholarships that the OPG annually awards to HCRHS graduating seniors (typically 4 to 6) who have shown commitment, talent and leadership through their participation in the instrumental music programs throughout their high school careers.

The Holiday Concert Program provides you with the opportunity to support the scholarship program, earn money for your child’s student account and encourage your child’s ongoing interest in music. Here’s how:

Selling Ads to Local Businesses:

Make copies of the attached form to sell program ads to friends, family members, acquaintances and local businesses. They’re easy to sell as most rely on the support of the local community for their businesses, typically advertise to attract customers from Hunterdon County and many are already strong supporters of HCRHS programs.

For each ad you sell, your student account will be credited with 50% of the ad fee. For example, if you sell a full page ad for $75, your student account will be credited $37.50. The other $37.50 will be credited to the HCRHS OPG scholarship fund. Full instructions can be found on the Ad form. If you have questions please contact Kathy Raborn at 908-892-8552 or

Purchase and Sell Personal Boosters:

Boosters are a great way to support your student musician and wish them luck on their performance, especially if this is their first high school concert event. Using the second form in this packet you can purchase Full, Half and Business Card sized “personal” ads to acknowledge your child’s performance. You can also have personal messages printed in the program for a small fee per line.

Because boosters are offered at a significantly discounted rate, student accounts will not be credited for booster sales. The full cost the boosters sold will be used to offset the production costs of the Holiday Concert Program. Full instructions can be found on the Booster form. If you have questions please contact Kathy Raborn at 908-892-8552 or
