The purpose of the Clovis High School Instrumental Music Boosters is to advance the best interests of the Clovis High School Band, Color Guard, and Orchestra programs by providing support, as requested by the Director. All parents or guardians of students enrolled in the instrumental music program are members of the non-profit Clovis High School Instrumental Music Boosters organization. Maintaining a thriving instrumental music program requires support and fundraising beyond that is provided by the school system.
