WHAT IS TAG DAY?
Tag Day is the most important fundraiser for the Falls Church High School music department, benefiting all students participating in Band, Chorus, and Orchestra. It usually takes place every September to form a strong base for the yearly expenses of uniforms, instrument purchase and repair, transportation to festivals, parades and performances, scholarships, guest clinicians, and participation fees in competitions and festivals.
WHY IS TAG DAY SO IMPORTANT?
Tag Day pays for a lot of things that the county does not pay for:
It pays for the varied uniforms worn by the chorus, band and orchestra students, and the maintenance of all of these. It pays for the fancy plumes on the marching band hats.
It pays for sheet music and competition fees for concert, percussion and marching band arrangements. It might also pay for new instrument cases.
It pays for the color guard flags and the banners.
It pays for the additional instructors and visiting clinicians who share their talents with our student musicians.
It helps to pay the unexpected costs that arise from the Spring Trip.
A SUCCESSFUL TAG DAY...
ensures that the events planned for the music department throughout the school year can really happen. A successful Tag Day helps all chorus, orchestra, band students, marching band and color guard members.
