On August 13, 2022 we will reinstate our traditional Instrument Presentation Event.
We are actively getting upwards of 600 instruments ready for the 43 schools who will be awarded them during a formal ceremony at The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts.
We thank the Newman Center for the use of their space and for their ongoing support. After a two-year hiatus, we are thrilled to be once again gathering together to distribute instruments in a concert hall.
HELPING STUDENTS IMPACTED BY THE MARSHALL FIRES
Working with the Boulder Valley School District and our repair partner, CIOMIT, Bringing Music to Life made instruments available to many students who lost theirs in the Marshall fires. Our first delivery of a dozen refurbished instruments was made in mid-January. By the end of January, 2022, 40 young musicians whose instruments were lost to fire had newly restored instruments to play.
In August of 2021, with the help of our repair partners, we readied 594 refurbished instruments for the deserving music programs selected to receive them.
Forty-one music teachers from all across the state spent the last days of last summer coming to Denver to take possession of instruments prior to the 2021/2022 school year!
When Westminster High School came to pick up their instruments, What’s Up WPS cameras came along and they were there as the students began to play!
Take a look and have a listen!
