Thank You To Our Donors

Thanks to our generous Instrument Drive and Repair Fund Donors, instruments are now available at no cost for students who face financial barriers. If their primary instrument is unavailable, the student will be contacted about either receiving a different instrument or being placed on a waitlist until their requested instrument is available.
