Spaghetti Supper: The First HSPVA Tradition

The Annual Spaghetti Supper, sponsored by the HSPVA Music Department, is a tradition that dates back to the inaugural year of our school in 1971.  Every single musician who has ever walked the halls of this venerable institution, has performed at Spaghetti Supper.

The supper serves as the primary Music Department fundraising project each school year, and features continuous entertainment by all of our student musicians in four separate venues across our campus.  The event is organized and operated each year by an army of hardworking parents who graciously donate their time and efforts.
