What We Do
The GKMPA supports the Marching Band, Vocal and Instrumental Music Departments, and the All-School Musical. We provide performance trip chaperones, assist with the distribution and collection of uniforms, and provide special rehearsal and performance needs including ushers at concerts and refreshments at various music events. We also raise funds to provide extraordinary items that might not usually be available for purchase within the constraints of the school budget, and to award scholarships and various recognition awards to students and seniors in June; in short we support the excellence which is the Music/Performing Arts Program at NVOT!
Some of the work of GKMPA includes:
- Providing dinners for the marching band during band camp week and before every football game.
- Providing refreshments at the band camp exhibition.
- Providing chaperones and equipment transportation for all marching band trips.
