Musical Instrument Drive to Benefit Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s OrchKids, Nov. 29- Dec. 17
Music retail store Music and Arts to repair donated instruments at no cost
Baltimore Symphony Orchestra announces a Musical Instrument Drive, which runs from November 29 to December 17, 2010. The BSO invites the community to donate musical instruments in good to fair condition to benefit OrchKids, the BSO’s after-school music program that serves youth in West Baltimore. Music & Arts will provide instrument repair on donations when necessary at no cost. A one hundred instrument goal has been set for this holiday season.
Each Holiday season, for the four weeks following Thanksgiving, WMAR TV sponsors a Toy Drive. The call for musical instruments to benefit OrchKids is a new component of this annual event. WMAR TV will team up with WEAA FM (88.9) to promote the Drive on the air and on their websites over the four weeks as well as serve as drop off sites.
