Grammy Museum Sponsors Drive!
Schools receiving instruments in 2018 included Kirksey, Powell, Obama Magnet, Cardozo, and Peeples Middle School. A special thanks goes to our very own MCSB musicians who donated funds and musical instruments to the project. MCSB musicians helped test and/or repair donated instruments. We appreciate our MCSB volunteers who assisted with setting up and working our instrument drive table at the concerts. A special thanks is also in store for the audience and community members who donated funds and instruments!
Community support continues to be tremendous! In 2018, Mississippi Music discounted instrument cleaning kits and repairs. Ardenland Entertainment donated another $500 to the project. The instrument drive also picked up some new sponsors including The Community Foundation For Mississippi, Trustmark Bank, Entergy, The Walmart Foundation, Grammy Museum Mississippi, the Madison Jazz Society and others.
Musical instruments will continue to be collected throughout the concert season. We are collecting instruments of all types: trumpets, trombones, clarinets, flutes, saxophones and more! Donated instruments will be cleaned, serviced and distributed to select school band programs to be loaned to families who could not afford to rent or purchase a musical instrument for their child. The MCSB is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductible.
