The beginning of the school year marks the end of our annual cycle. This year, we not only met our year-end deadline, we beat it! Thanks to the unparalleled success of this year’s instrument drive, we filled most of the needs of all qualifying music programs. Of the instruments donated last March and repaired in the interim, 594 were in the hands of Colorado children when 41 band directors and orchestra conductors picked up their batons for the first downbeat of the new school year. And for the first time, instrument donations outpaced instrument applications. That means extra brass, strings and woodwinds are waiting in the wings – ready to be repaired and awarded as part of the 2022 instrument drive.
QUARTER NOTES, JUNE 2021: THANK YOU TO ALL who made this year’s instrument drive a resounding success!June 24, 2021
We gratefully note that more instruments were donated in 2021 than in any of the previous five years! We would like to thank the 776 individuals who generously parted with one or more of their instruments, including Rocky and Dorothy DeNiro of Pueblo, Colorado (pictured here at their home) who gifted us with 100 horns and woodwinds from their private collection.
