Tag Day - Continue to Donate Online!


September 7, 2019: The JAMES MADISON HIGH SCHOOL BANDS — the “Pride of Vienna” — under the direction of Michael Hackbarth, offer one of the finest high school band programs in the United States. The band students—who include instrumentalists, drum line, and color guard—canvassed neighborhoods in the JMHS school district to solicit contributions in support of our excellent programs. Because Fairfax County does not fully fund the music program, the band students and the Band Parents organization must raise the money to provide the high caliber of instruction and assistance required to maintain our record of excellence. Your TAG DAY contribution, which is tax deductible, will be used to fund:

  • Travel and entry fees for regional and national marching and performance competitions
  • Instruments and equipment — last year’s TAG DAY helped the band purchase several new instruments
  • Superior instructors that specialize in each section of the band — many of our instructors play in the area’s leading venues such as “The President’s Own”
  • Student leadership training and student awards
