Music Day Fundraising is Saturday, Salem Car Seat Clinic

Students will participate in the Music Day fundraiser this weekend

An estimated 200 students from West Salem High School’s band, choir and orchestra programs will take to the streets of the city on September 11 to raise funds for the school’s music department.

In previous years, Music Day has been a districtwide event for Salem-Keiser Public School students, dating back to the early 2000s.

Several other high school programs are also participating this year, district leaders said, including students from Sprague, South Salem and North Salem high schools. McNary High School’s band program is collecting donations at Keizer’s V2 Dentistry.

She added that donations of bottles and cans are also appreciated.

This year, parent volunteers will run groups of four or five students throughout the West Salem neighborhood, covering 52 routes that will be covered between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Different school events have different times.

“This day is important for students to connect with their community and learn that the community supports them,” Peterson said. “It allows the community to be part of the tradition of musical excellence[at]the West and be part of West Salem pride.”

As one of the school’s largest fundraisers for music, Peterson said the contribution of the community is important. Support, he said, allows students to gain musical experiences, such as bringing in world-renowned practitioners and traveling to elite festivals.
