As a shop that has been a donation location since the very first year of the instrument drive, Kolacny Music holds a special place for Bringing Music to Life – as they do for the generations of musicians who did business there. Their support of Bringing Music to Life was just a fraction of their many and varied contributions to Denver’s music community throughout their 93 year history. They will be missed!
