In March 2014, WQXR hosted an Instrument Drive. Generous music lovers donated more than 3,000 gently used musical instruments at drop off locations in New York City, Northern New Jersey, Westchester and Long Island. Working with Sam Ash Music Stores and the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, WQXR repaired the instruments and has distributed them to more than 90 deserving music programs in New York City Public Schools (and counting!).
They're gearing up to double the number of instruments that go to music programs next year and they need your help to cover the costs of repairs and related supplies. Please join us in supporting the WQXR Instrument Drive!
