What is Downingtown High Schools Music Parent’s Association?   In a word it is “YOU” ---- and other parents like you who want to see our kids get the best experience they can from being involved in the music programs offered.   We represent all three Downingtown High Schools --- East, West and STEM.   We are the parents of students in BAND, CHOIR, COLOR GUARD, INDOOR PERCUSSION, AND ORCHESTRA in all three high schools.   We lend support, both moral and financial, as well as help promote and maintain an active and enthusiastic interest in the various music programs.  

We need your help and support.   Please volunteer through the Ivolunteer link on this page.     Come to our monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month.   Like our Facebook page.

We want to hear from you.   We want to share our student’s achievements in these programs.    If you have video or pictures, please send them or the YouTube link to us so we can share them with the other parents via our Facebook page.   They can be sent to mpa.donna@gmail.com, or message us through our Facebook page..
