Did you know that a new trombone costs $3000? Transportation to a competition just across town $1000? Rights to produce Rent and Guys and Dolls tops $9000?
To Fill the House this academic year, Friends of the Academy of Music and Performing Arts (AMPA) must raise a total of $250,000 for students to practice and perform.
Providing every AMPA student with a unique education both in performing arts and personal development requires more funding that LAUSD provides. Friends of AMPA knows the arts are absolutely essential to your child's education and future. That's why we are asking you to help Fill the House.
All monies raised directly benefit students: to purchase new instruments, equipment and supplies; to mount shows and pay royalties; to pay guest artists to work with students; and to provide transportation to field trips and competitiions.
