BOPA is a volunteer organization dedicated to supplementing the operation of the Instrumental Music Department of Park Ridge-Niles School District 64 for the benefit of our children. BOPA members work with District 64 teachers and staff to help deliver opportunities for the children that would otherwise not be available and to maximize their musical experience.

BOPA is funded primarily through its annual membership drive, concert donations, and individual school PTO contributions. All funds raised are spent on programs benefiting our young musicians. Membership in BOPA helps provide for the following types of opportunities for our children: summer music camp scholarships; music workshops; guest artists and concert accompanists; contests and tours; additional sheet music, books, music media, videos and software; award medals for solo recitals; purchase and repair of additional instruments and equipment; and incentives and parties for our musicians.

Together We Discover, Learn, Grow & Care

At D64, our mission is to foster opportunities for discovery, engagement, and growth for all students. We accomplish this by nurturing interdependence, appreciation of differences, and care for self and others.
