The Tinora Music Boosters provide financial support for the band, choir and general music programs at Northeastern Local Schools. We have purchased instruments, uniforms/robes, choir risers, sound and video equipment, and much more. We have also provided funds for fees for contests, music awards, and helped defray the cost of trips for students. Each year the Tinora Music Boosters award up to two $500 scholarships to graduating seniors.
