WHAT WE DO:

 FUNDRAISE, VOLUNTEER,  SUPPORT.

MISSION & HISTORY.

SBOB is an active group of volunteers who work with the instrumental music staff of the Sycamore Community Schools to support, enhance, and supplement the needs of the Sycamore Band and Orchestra programs. Simply put, it's band and orchestra families who want to help make their student's musical experience at Sycamore the best it can be.

We were first organized in the 1960s and the current structure has been in place since 1983. SBOB is a registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that is run by an executive board of 12 parent trustees. 4 instrumental music staff also serve on the board.

GET INVOLVED.

Any parent or guardian that has a student in band or orchestra is automatically a member of SBOB. Hundreds of families become involved as volunteers at the various events and fundraisers we put on each year. SBOB is also the source of volunteers for chaperoning trips, hosting post-concert receptions, fitting uniforms and tuxedos, and coordinating food for evening rehearsals. For more information on how to get involved, fill out the form at the bottom of this page!
