WQXR, New York’s only classical station, announced the first-ever WQXR INSTRUMENT DRIVE. The WQXR INSTRUMENT DRIVE will take place from March 28 – April 7 and aims to collect at least 1,000 instruments. Held in partnership with the New York City Department of Education, Sam Ash Music Stores, and Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, the initiative will invite people throughout the New York City metro region to donate their gently used musical instruments, for distribution to music programs at Title I New York City public schools and community music programs.
Donors will be able to bring their instruments to drop-off locations in all five NYC boroughs, Westchester, Long Island and Northern New Jersey. Once the instruments are collected, Sam Ash Music Stores will assess and refurbish them before they are distributed. Donate your instrument and change a life. Pass it on.
