The Lincoln Center will be accepting donations for their Play It Forward Instrument Drive Nov. 24-Dec 23. They are partnering with Boomer Music Company to collect instrument donations to benefit Bringing Music to Life.

Bringing Music to Life is a Colorado-wide effort that awards donated instruments to deserving schools who apply and meet the program criteria. This includes Title One and other schools that have underfunded music education programs. All the instruments awarded are in excellent playable condition thanks to Bringing Music to Life’s partnership with the Colorado Institute of Musical Instrument Technology, which appraises and repairs donated instruments.

Please bring gently used band and orchestra instruments including strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion and guitars to the Lincoln Center beginning at 6:30 p.m. November 24. The Play It Forward drive will then last through December 23 and anyone can donate during the hours that the Lincoln Center is open, which vary but include Tue-Sat, noon-6 p.m. and during performances. Tickets to events are not required to drop off donations.

Bringing Music to Life will send a formal thank you letter with the appraised value of any instrument donated that can be used for tax purposes. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.
