'A Note to Remember'  canceled for 2022

Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of attendees and other factors, the Sycamore Music Boosters has decided to cancel “A Note to Remember,” its mid-February gala fundraiser, for 2022.


Boosters President Cara Jovanovich said the decision to cancel was difficult and occurred via several prolonged discussions.


“We’re heartbroken about cancelling one of our best and favorite events,” Jovanovich said. “A Note to Remember is a great evening. Community members celebrates the accomplishments of our music students and faculty, enjoy delicious food and beverages, and help us raise needed funds via sponsorships, silent auction, raffles and attendance.”


The Sycamore Music Boosters hopes to relaunch A Note to Remember in February 2023.


Meanwhile, there are several other upcoming opportunities to become involved and support Sycamore music programs:

In April, the Boosters will again host its enormously popular mattress and bedding sale. The event is 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sat., April 9 at the Sycamore Park District Community Center, 480 S. Airport Rd.

In May, the Boosters will again participate in Give DeKalb County, a countywide event in which nonprofit organizations benefit from the generosity of donors.

13th Annual A Note to Remember | Saturday, February 13, 2021

In 2021, Sycamore Music Boosters celebrated the 13th annual A Note to Remember fundraiser. Typically, this event provides an opportunity for people to gather to enjoy live musical performances and fabulous food, drinks and desserts, raffles and silent auctions.

Unfortunately, conditions and our overarching concern for health and safety dictated that we change the event (hopefully just this year!) Undaunted, we created a free, digital event with a special theme.

This online event featured musical performances as well as interviews, testimonials and commentary that focus on the importance of  music education and music in our lives.

Our annual event raises funds to support the music education of Sycamore’s children. This year attendees supported the efforts of the Music Boosters through monetary donations. 

Thank you to the following alumni who graciously donated performances for this event:

Drayton Eggleson (with Brian Kowalski), Greg Heintz, Jim Hendricks, Lori Grant and Sarah Grant (with Patrick Wright), 

The Smelser Quarentette: Ann Montzka-Smelser with Linc Smelser, Genevieve Smelser and Noah Krauss, Terri Crain Goodman,

Garth Anderson, Andrew Selig and Jordan Smith, Rachel Hecht, Pete Benson, Michael Kasper, Jennifer McCabe, Hellen Weberpal
