How Does My Membership Support the Band and Colorguard Programs?
Allen Band Booster Association funds numerous summer camps. Last every year, including Drum Major camp at University of North Texas and Colorguard Captain camp at University of Texas - Austin.
Camps and Summer Scholarships
Clinics and Techs
Last year ABBA provided funding for 5 music clinicians for the Band, including one at the middle school level. Throughout the year, guest clinicians and techs come in and supplement what the directors teach our students. That's countless and invaluable hours that help our students become better performers.
