March 16-28, 2015

In partnership with Bringing Music to Life, Colorado Public Radio joins this two-week community effort to collect and refurbish instruments for music education programs in need.

If you have a band or orchestra instrument in good condition that you no longer play, bring it to the Bringing Music to Life Instrument drive at one of 17 donation locations March 16-28. If you've donated an instrument in the past, please be sure to check the donation location list, as some locations have changed. 

Watch this video to find out more about the instrument drive.


Since launching in 2009 …

Over 1,900 instruments have gone to more than 100 Colorado schools and music programs. Started by CPR to promote and strengthen music education and appreciation, the mission continues with the new non-profit Bringing Music to Life.
