The Austin High School Orchestra’s Baton Circles include gifts made by business and individual donors as well as by corporate sponsors. This support helps the AHS Orchestra extend its reach in the community, expand its education programs, and maintain the highest levels of artistic excellence. Baton Circle donations help underwrite and support the AHS Orchestra’s need for instruments, uniforms, private lessons, supplies, contest fees, awards, trips, the annual banquet, and social events for students.
[As AHS strives to increase “green” practices, the orchestra will now print one-page programs for most concerts rather than the traditional longer program booklets.]
