What We Do

The primary objectives of the the Glenbard East Music Association (GEMA) are to generate and maintain an enthusiastic interest in the various music classes and performing ensembles at Glenbard East High School, lend moral and financial support to the music programs, cooperate with the music department personnel in building and maintaining an organization of people and parents for the purpose of promoting the programs and general activities, and to raise and disburse funds for any or all of the approved projects or objectives of the organization.

GEMA projects include:

  • Renovation of the practice rooms with new digital pianos
  • The annual gRAMmys music awards event
  • Thousands of dollars in scholarship money per year for music students

We need YOU to join! Membership requires no time commitment, only a modest financial contribution. Those who can join include:

  • Parents/guardians
  • Alumni
  • Current students
  • Parents of alumni
  • Staff members
  • Community members
  • Any friend of music!
  • YOU!
