MUSICAL TOOLS FOR SCHENECTADY SCHOOLS
|SCHENECTADY GROUP SEEKS INSTRUMENTS FOR STUDENTS
Musical Tools for the Schenectady Schools is seeking unused band and orchestra instruments to put to use in the Schenectady Schools Music program.
“We hear that many people have instruments around the house that are no longer being used. Dusting them off and putting them in the hands of a young student would be an inspiring gift to the community and to a future musician,” said Catherine Sheridan, American Federation of Musicians Local 85-133 President, an organizer of the drive.
The instruments will go to the Schenectady Friends of Music, who have had the traditional role of supporting the music programs in Schenectady. Tax-deductible receipts are available.
“We have heard from teachers that the music program is growing by leaps and bounds, which has put pressure on the supply of instruments. It would be great if each student had an instrument to play and take home to practice,” said Steve Weisse, former President of Schenectady Friends of Music.
If you are interested in donating, the Friends of Music will arrange for a pickup by calling Steve Weisse at (518) 346-4266. Instruments may also be left at the Proctors Box Office any time they are open. Contact Karen Johnson (518) 382-3884 x 114.
