Elmhurst Music Boosters (“EMB") is a parent organization established to support the development of the District 205 music students in grades four through eight. Founded in 1978, EMB works in cooperation with the district’s music staff to provide young musicians with an enriching and rewarding musical experience.
EMB raises money for music scholarships for deserving band, orchestra and choir students as well as providing financial aid to students in need of assistance. An annual social event is provided as a way of rewarding students for their hard work and dedication.
