Be generous on HS band Tag Day

Stuart High School music students prepare for Tag Day.
Tag Day is coming. This is the day when members of local high school bands knock on doors to request donations from the public.

Annandale High School Band Tag Day is this Saturday, Sept. 6.

Both the Falls Church High School and Stuart High School bands are having Tag Day on Sept. 13. Stuart’s Tag Day also supports the orchestra and chorus programs, as well as the band.

It’s unfortunate that Fairfax County doesn’t provide all the things that high school music programs need and that students have to go around door-to-door to ask for money – but that’s the way it’s been for years. Donations collected on Tag Day pay for things like band uniforms, sheet music, competition fees, transportation to competitions, guest clinicians, and much more.

When a student comes to your door, please be generous. If you’re not home, you can contribute online or send a check by mail.

To support the Annandale High School Band, visit the Band Boosters website to to make a donation via PayPal or send a check to AHSBB, P.O. Box 1231, Annandale VA 22003. You can contribute to the Stuart Band Boosters and Falls Church Band Boosters online, too.

  2. The Falls Church High School Music Department Tag Day is this Saturday, September 13. Members of the band, chorus and orchestra will be knocking on doors looking for donations to the music programs at FCHS. Please consider making a generous donation if they are in your neighborhood!

    After Tag Day, the FCHS Band will perform on the green at the Mosaic District. The band is scheduled to arrive at 5:30 and will play for about a half-hour after they finish setting up. If you are in the area, stop by to see them perform!

  3. Thanks for supporting Stuart Music! Tag Day is the single most important fundraiser we do to help our music programs.
