Instrument Bank

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
  • Percussion
  • Instruments such as keyboard and guitar, for use in general music classrooms

Where to Donate

Instruments can be dropped off at:

  • any MSO concert
  • the MSO office at 21 S Potomac St, 2nd Floor, Hagerstown, MD 21740 (The Maryland Theatre Performing Arts Center)
  • the Washington County Board of Education at 10435 Downsville Pike in Hagerstown
  • 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.
