SUMMIT, NJ - Marching into the community, Summit High School music students will canvas the City of Summit on Sunday, November 5 -- between 12 - 4 p.m. -- as participants in the Summit Music Parents Association’s (SMPA) 'Pledge Day'.

The annual fundraising tradition sees the band, orchestra and chorus students asking the community for financial support that is vital to the Summit Public Schools music programs.

The money collected is used to help fund scholarships, replace instruments and equipment and bring in renowned musicians to teach master classes. 'Pledge Day' also helps subsidize music trips to festivals and competitions, including his year’s trip to Nashville where each group will showcase their talents.
