Because music makes an incredible difference in the lives of children.
Many students in Washington County would like to be a part of an instrumental music program, and would benefit from this kind of creative outlet, but cannot due to financial restrictions.The MSO/Washington County Board of Education Instrument Bank collects donated instruments from the community that these students can use in local schools.
What to Donate
- Woodwind – Flute, clarinet, saxophone
- Brass – Trumpet, trombone, French horn, euphonium, tuba
- String – Violin, viola, cello, bass
- Instruments such as keyboard and guitar, for use in general music classrooms.
Where to Donate
Instruments can be dropped off at any MSO concert, at the MSO office at 30 West Washington Street in Hagerstown, Maryland, at the Washington County Board of Education, Commonwealth Avenue in Hagerstown, or at the main office of any local school. A quick assessment of the instrument will be made, any repairs completed, and the instrument given to a student in need. The donor will receive a donation letter for tax purposes.
