Nearly 200 donations contributed
for Milwaukee area kids — and counting!
A violin played by a WWII soldier in Trinidad. A saxophone that delighted audiences at the 1964 World’s Fair. A daughter’s first flute…
Thanks to our many Instrument Drive supporters, volunteers, community partners, and sponsors, the stories of these treasured instruments will continue as they find their way to young musicians ready to begin their own musical journey.
While these treasured instruments undergo necessary refurbishing, there are still ways that you can help impact a child’s music education:
What can I do?
You can help impact the lives of hundreds throughout the region by donating an instrument, supporting repair efforts, volunteering, and more.
We currently seek support from school and community organizations, media and corporate sponsors, instrument repair companies, and especially philanthropic community members.
As we continue to face cuts to music education programs in schools, it will take the entire community to play our part and support the future of music education.
Ongoing instrument donations are being accepted at the Conservatory’s McIntosh|Goodrich location during normal operating hours. Please call (414) 276-5760 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
