DENVER, CO – Learning to play an instrument can have a profound, positive impact on a child, teaching valuable life skills and boosting confidence and self-esteem. And that instrument you have at home can help make it happen.
Ascend Performing Arts is proud to partner with Bringing Music to Life to help Elevate Life Performance in the Rocky Mountain Region (learn more about our Partners here).
Bringing Music to Life enriches the lives of Colorado children and their communities by collecting, repairing and distributing donated musical instruments to schools and music programs, providing children who otherwise might not have the opportunity with the benefits that come from learning to play.
On March 13th through the 25th, Bringing Music to Life will hold the 2017 Instrument Drive, collecting donations of gently-used band and orchestra instruments that will be repaired and awarded to deserving music programs throughout the state.
To date more than 3,100 instruments have been given to over 140 elementary, middle and high schools in Colorado.
But there are still many more children who want to learn to play but can’t afford to rent or buy an instrument. If you have an instrument you can donate, please do so beginning March 13th. A complete list of drop off locations is available at the website: www.bringmusic.org.
Even if you don’t have an instrument, you can help by contributing to Bringing Music to Life’s repair fund. $120 is all it takes to repair a donated instrument and put it in the hands of a child.
