By partnering with the school and community, we can support a quality music program for all students. Volunteer, or donate online or via check to ‘MAG’ at P.O. Box 1171, Eastsound, WA 98245. MAG is a 501(c)(3) organization.
Our signature Spring annual fundraiser is the single largest concert on Orcas island, where over 100 island musicians come together in a show of support for school music that has become an island tradition.
Now, the number of students choosing band and strings is growing tremendously and their performances at competition are winning regional recognition. To reach greater heights, we need your continuing support for the Orcas Island Public School music program.
