Hello Neighbors,

Did you know that McCallum High School & Fine Arts Academy is home to one of the leading classical guitar programs for students in Texas?  We are reaching out to raise awareness and funds for this award-winning program.

The ensemble’s primary fundraiser (and one of the student favorites) is the upcoming Battle of the Bands on Wednesday, November 16, at the McCallum Fine Arts Building Theater.

A few highlights of the student Battle of the Bands contest:

  • Approx. 120-150 students and supporters are expected to watch McCallum student bands fight for the “best band” honor.
  • Two winning bands will play at Hole in the Wall in Spring 2023
  • Proceeds from Battle of the Bands will support future guitar and equipment purchases, visiting master class musicians and scholarships for the students’ 2023 trip + performance in NYC.

We hope that you will consider supporting the Mac Classical Guitar Program with a tax-deductible donation that will help the students reach their performance goals this year.  A one-time 2022-23 donation will include your company logo (or name) as a Battle of the Bands sponsor, as well as additional logo/name placement on the BotB poster, and in the 2023 Guitar Spring Performance program.

2022-23 Mac Guitar Program sponsorship rates and benefits are included below.  We seek confirmation of support and funding by October 31, so please reach out immediately if you have any questions.
