About the PAMC
Who we are
Founded in 1981, as the Salem High School Parents Music Club (PMC), our organization supports all of the performing arts at Salem High School. In 2019, the PMC changed its name to the Salem High School Performing Arts Music Club (PAMC) to better reflect our purpose. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The PAMC provides hands-on support for prop building, uniform repair, chaperoning, moving equipment, etc. We provide funding for the purchase or repair of instruments and equipment. We also host the Salem Marching Band Invitational and the Salem Winter Percussion and Winter Guard Home Show. In addition, the PAMC sponsors activities for the band and guard, such as ice cream socials, pizza parties, potluck dinners, etc. Our funds also help support the tractor/trailer that hauls our instruments and equipment.
The PAMC supports the Chorus through fundraising to help with travel costs when the Chorus travels for competitions or special performances. The money earned from the Marching Band Invitational in the Fall allows the PAMC to fund the production costs for the spring musical each year. We also support the financial and parent volunteer needs of the fall play, including helping provide meals for the actors during Tech Week.
Each year, the PAMC celebrates our Senior students' accomplishments by awarding scholarship money, as well as small mementos of their time with Salem High School Performing Arts groups.
The PAMC meets on the first Monday of each month during the school year at 7:00 p.m. in either the Chorus or Band Room.
