Bertrand's Music Fundraiser - June 24 & June 26-30

This fundraiser is fun for the whole family - ALL band and orchestra families are invited to participate! Bertrand's Music will pay PHSMB $5 for every instrument that we clean and check for adjustments. This could be worth thousands of dollars!!! The event will be held at the Bertrand's location at 12439 Poway Road, Suite C, directly across the street from Jack in the Box (almost on the corner of Poway and Pomerado Roads) next to Burger King.

We need 5 students and 2 adults for up to 5 hours a day on June 24 and June 26-30. Bertrand's will train us to become experts in cleaning and evaluating woodwind instruments. ANYONE can sign up, including brass, string, percussion, and non-musicians! For more information see the Bertrand's Music Fundraiser Flyer or go to the online sign-up pages. Contact Lynn Willette at if you have any questions.

NOTE TO WOODWIND MUSICIANS: Please bring your mouthpiece and reeds of preference for testing.
