Concert Seating

Two people per student are invited to attend the concert. Per district mandates, families must seat in pairs, six feet away from each other. There are two show times per program; show times are based on your student’s grade level.


General admission seating is free.


Reserved seating available!

Families can reserve seating through SHOWTIX for a donation of $25 per seat. 


Visit showtix4u.com, then search for Ballard High School to reserve seats.


All attendees will need to present vaccination cards, identification, and complete a Health Attestation prior to entering the building. Attendees must be ushered to seats by a volunteer so we can do any necessary contract tracing.


The district’s policy is to check the cards of those 18 and over who are not students.

Volunteers Needed!

We need parent volunteers to help with the upcoming concert series. It will be best if parents from other groups can volunteer at a concert that their student is not involved with. For example, choir parents can volunteer at the band or orchestra concert.

We need a total of 12 volunteers for each evening:


  • Two volunteers needed to check IDs and vaccine cards

  • Two volunteers to usher groups to their seats

  • Two volunteers to supervise students as they wait in the music rooms


Please sign up for a slot via the signup genius.


To volunteer with Seattle Public Schools, you MUST complete the SPS online process. PLEASE start this process ASAP. Check with Cindy Peterson in the admin office to see if your paperwork is up to date.

Screens to Stage Fundraising Campaign Results!


We are blown away to report that we raised $30,000 during our Screens to Stage Giving Campaign which wrapped up on Nov. 20.

Thank you to everyone who came out last Wednesday night for our Screens to Stage Wrap Party.  We raised about $10,000 alone that night, and it was a wonderful night full of fun and energy. Watching our kids perform in front of a crowd for the first time in what seems like forever, was amazing. Thanks to everyone’s generosity over the past 3 weeks, we exceeded our goal of $20,000 and set us up to have to raise less funds in the spring!  We are all so grateful for this community and thank you for giving so generously. 



Special thanks to Fundraising Chair Kris Bulson, BPA CoPresident Jeannette Chen, Em Cee Danny Adamson, Sound and Logistics pro Steve Skonieczny and Admin Jill Hanson who made this event happen. And a big thank you to our volunteers who helped sell raffle tickets, take payments, advise on fundraising communications, and wrangle kids: Carol Cheyne, Mishelle Jin, Shelley Rousseau, Jolyn Mason, Tanya Davis, Michelle Murphy, Karen Morse, Jamiee Papineau, Hero Alldredge and Kevin Bulson, Student photographer Mali Sanchez

Did you like the event format? Have ideas on how to improve it? We want to hear that too! Our aim is to host events that are fun, casual, build community, raise funds, have free admission, so they include and and are accessible to as many people as possible. Send us feedback at ballardperformingarts@gmail.com


Hello parents! We need help next year to keep our program support running.  Most parents also work full time jobs, but we make it work with the “many hands make light work” philosophy. Join us!


Spaghetti Dinner Leads

Coordinate and organize the most fun event of the year that involves all the performing arts groups. Work with a friend as a team! Join a group of outstanding parents who procures the food, sells tickets, organizes volunteers, etc. Contact Jeannette at bpabpresident@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Roles Needed for 2022

Would you like to help train for a Group Rep position? Work side-by-side to train with our web editor? Our team is solid this year and at the end of the school year, several of our dedicated and wonderful volunteers will be graduating with their students. We would love to bring new parents on board so they can “shadow” a group rep (band, jazz, orchestra, choir, theatre) and learn how to support the program. Or, work with the web editor to update the site for our community. The goal is to have a new team in place well before the end of the year so that these superheroes can enjoy the last few months with their seniors. Please email Jeannette Chen, bpabpresident@gmail.com if you have interest in any positions that are coming online.
