Music of the Knight

Program Guide

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, Southington High School's Marching Band will host our home marching competition, "Music of the Knight".

This is our most important fundraising event of the year!

Proceeds from Music of the Knight pay for about half of the cost of running the marching band program for one season (approx. $500/student), and a large portion of the revenue from the MOTK show is derived from from the "Program Guide".  The Program Guide is the program that is purchased by spectators at the competition which includes show information and advertisements from our sponsors. Band students sell advertisements to local businesses, friends, and families to display in the book.  Ad costs range from $3 to $450.  W-9 forms are available for those companies or businesses requesting a form. 

Your coordinators for this year's Program Guide are:

Under Southington Board of Education policies, fundraising is voluntary.  However, in fairness to all who work so hard to produce a quality Marching Band program, we are asking each band and color guard student to sell at least $300 in advertising.  A portion of each ad sale over $300 will be credited to the student in points.

During mini-band camp, students received their Ad Book Kit, including ad book sales forms.  Additional forms can be downloaded from the forms section of the website.

If you would like to submit an ad electronically, you may do so by including the pertinent information from the form, and your ad image as an attachment,  Please note that we will not place your ad in the book or credit your account until payment is received.  You should also fill out a form to be sure that your student account is properly credited.  Just mark on the form "submitted electronically".

If an advertiser would like to use "last year's ad" - simply check Pick Up from Last Year on the form -- Be sure to collect all pertinent information in case we need to contact them about the ad.


Please do not hold advertisements that you have received.  Deliver them as soon as possible so that we can avoid a last minute crunch.
