Trivia Night

The Tour de Strings Music Trivia Night is fast approaching.  It will be held on Thursday, November 9th.  In order to make this event successful, we are asking for your help.  We will be pulling together several Gift Baskets which will be raffled off between trivia rounds at the event.
We are asking for Orchestra Families to help us pull these baskets together by making donations.  We have created a Sign Up Genius with requested items.   After you complete the Sign Up Genius, just send the donated items in to your student’s Orchestra Teacher by November 3. 
Here is a link to the Sign Up Genius: 
We will pick up the donations from the teachers on November 3 and take it from there.  Thank you so much for your generosity!  Every donation will make a positive impact on District 7’s Orchestra program.
If you have any questions or concerns about these donations, feel free to contact Jill Thompson at or 618-789-7818.

T-Shirt Deadline

Hello Orchestra Families!

We hope the school year has been kind to you so far. Just a quick reminder–t-shirt and hoodie order forms are due NO LATER THAN September 8! (This includes paper forms and online orders!)

If you need another form, be sure to ask your teacher. Don’t forget to check out our online shop at the “EOB Shop” tab above.

Thanks for your continued support!

(Psst! Make sure you’re checking our social media pages for similar updates: Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!)

Registration & T-Shirts

The school year is fast approaching, and that means registration! See the schedule below for your school’s times:

Orchestra Boosters will have a table set up at each location. We will have order forms on hand for…drum roll, please…2017-18 T-SHIRTS AND HOODIES! (See the bottom of this post for PDF versions of the order forms. If you’d prefer printing it yourself, or can’t make it to the Booster table at registration, print your grade level’s order form and bring it in to your teacher by September 9th.)

In addition to hard copy order forms, we’re continuing to go paperless (and simple) and have set up links in the EOB Shop to order the shirts and hoodies via PayPal. PayPal accepts all major credit cards, and you don’t need an account to check out. Same rules apply: Preorder online before September 9th to get your new favorite shirt! Follow the link (“EOB Shop”) in the menu above to select your grade level’s products. Shirts and hoodies ordered both with a paper form and online will be distributed at the end of September.

Also available at the table will be flyers for volunteer opportunities throughout the year. You can find it below the t-shirt order forms on this post. Print it off and bring it in to your teacher. We’d love to have your help!

We can’t wait for this new year to begin. Great things are in store for the program, and we can’t wait to see what the kids do this year! Thanks, as always, for supporting music in our schools.
