Got a trumpet in the attic?

If you've got an instrument gathering dust, we'll take it!

Worcester Public Schools and WICN 90.5, the NPR jazz station in Worcester, announces a collaboration called Instrumental Partners. The program will collect used musical instruments from Central New England residents for the benefit of public school students.
All instruments will be accepted: brass, wind, string, percussion, acoustic, electric, etc.
WICN will ask people to check their attics, closets and basements for instruments no longer used. “One instrument, placed in the right pair of young hands, could mean everything to that student’s future.” Weston said. The drop off points for the instruments will be the Hanover Theater on Main Street in Worcester, and the WICN studios in the Printers Building, 50 Portland Street.
 First priority is getting South High what they need for the parade in D.C. on July 4th (and yes, they're taking monetary donations as well!).
