Donate Your Old Instruments!
Strathmore is pleased to partner with Hungry for Music, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit dedicated to bringing musical concerts and workshops to underprivileged children as well as donating instruments to young people who could not otherwise afford them. A portion of the proceeds from CD sales at Strathmore all summer long supports the instrument donation program. Additionally, Strathmore will hold an instrument drive all summer, so please bring your used instruments to the summer concerts to donate to the Hungry for Music instrument refurbishment program.
