2016 Fitting Days Are Coming!
Every top ensemble not only needs to sound good, they also need (and deserve) to look good!
Fitting days is the time of year when students are fitted for the music wear they will need for their performances at SCN. This year's fitting days are the evenings of August 15-18th and August 25th, 2016.
We need help measuring and fitting the students in their uniforms and also to supply the many volunteers with food and refreshments. Please click below to get all the details about fitting days and please fill out the volunteer form. We need your help!
Donate your used concert wear
Class of 2016 students and parents
We will be accepting donations of used concert wear from graduating seniors to make available to current and new students with financial needs. This program has made it possible for many students who, because of financial consideration, would not have been able to pursue their passion for music at SCN.
Starting the week of the final concerts, we will be placing a bin outside the Orchestra room for you to place your used concert wear in. The bin will stay there until the end of the year, so please make use of it. If you’re unable to drop these items off, just contact Kim Devine or Stacey Wasilevich to make arrangements.
Consult with your tax advisor as donated clothing may be tax deductable. If you need a receipt, please email Kim Devine.
Thanks for your help in supporting SCN Music!

The 2016 Jazz Showcase is Coming!
And we really need your help
Jazz Showcase will be held on Saturday, May 21st, at The Q Center in St. Charles. Both instrumental and vocal jazz groups will be performing. Although talented jazz ensembles of SCN will be featured that night, it is important to understand that the proceeds raised benefit ALL of the amazing music programs at SCN.
The students are definitely what make the evening memorable, but the donations and volunteers are what make the event a fundraising success beyond covering the cost of the venue. We are still in need of numerous volunteers and donations to be able to host the event this year.
On behalf of the music students and staff at St. Charles North High School and the Friends of Music parents, we thank you very much for your help making this special event a huge success!
We are now offering advertising/sponsorship or an opportunity to send a student a special message in the event flyer
Welcome to the music program at St. Charles North High School!
The Friends of Music are excited for another year filled with fun events and great music.
The Friends of Music is the booster organization at St. Charles North High School. Our main focus is on fundraising which helps offset the high cost of a program at the high caliber enjoyed by the students at North. Our main fundraisers through the year includes:
- Cheese cake sale (November)
- Constellation Concert (December)
- Jazz Showcase (May)
Funds raised are put back into the program through the purchase of musical instruments, equipment, band camp scholarships and music clinics.
We also support many volunteer activities such as fitting days, spirit wear, Veteran's Day Concert and refreshments at different events throughout the year.
That's a lot...and we need your help. And a specific request...we are in need of a Communications Chair responsible for website updates and emails. It's not difficult and help is available to show you the ropes! Please email Andy Montgomery if you are interested.
Do your part to keep the music program at SCN one of the best in the nation. If you have any questions or are interested in helping the cause, please contact our president, Cait Flones. Thank you!
We need your help!
Please consider a monetary donation to help Friends of Music continue to provide resources and opportunities to the music students at SCN. Your donation is tax deductible!
