Haverford Band & Orchestra Parents

Welcome to the Haverford Band and Orchestra Parents (BOPs) Website!

Here you will find information and special announcements related to the activities of your student in Haverford’s fabulous music programs.

If you  have not already done so, please sign up for our email BOPs Blasts.

BOPs is a parent-run organization that supports the music education program in the Haverford School District.  Established in 1929, our original mission was to purchase uniforms for the band, orchestra, and color-guard.  Over the years, BOPs has added other essential duties to support music education, including but not limited to: fundraising for the replacement and maintenance of uniforms and instruments; chaperoning and bus transportation; planning bi-annual trips (Virginia Beach will be in Spring 2024!); planning meaningful ways to celebrate our graduating senior members; funding a small scholarship program for graduating musicians; and keeping parents, administrators and the community at large informed of events, meetings, concerts, and activities.

Annual BOPs Registration

Registration is required for all students who participate in the HMS and HHS Band and Orchestra programs. The Registration fees collected by BOPs subsidize the costs of these programs that are not covered by the School District.

We also send weekly emails to  the BOPs community so that you are aware of upcoming events and deadlines.
In order to support our students and make sure you have the information you need, please see below:
Payment for the 2022-23 Registration Fee is submitted separately by following these instructions:
  1. Check made payable to: "Haverford BOPS"
  2. Paypal account - treasurer@hhsmusic.org
  3. Trip Account - email tripaccounts@hhsmusic.org to transfer funds
Great news!  No Registration Fee for 6th graders or for a 3rd child in the music program.
