BSHARP

WHO WE ARE

BSHARP was formed as a band booster club in 1995 to support the growing band and orchestra program. BSHARP later added choir, drama and fine arts to become BSHARP: the Kennedy Catholic Arts Booster Club. BSHARP unites parents, faculty and the community into a support organization to ensure that the Kennedy Catholic Performing and Fine artists will experience the best artistic education available. We help with performances, promote our artists in the greater community and raise funds to support festival participation, uniforms, equipment, professional clinicians, scholarships and much, much more. Students, parents, staff, alumni and the general public are all welcome to join in the fun, inspiration and personal growth that the arts so uniquely provide.
