Richmond Concert Band "Old Instruments for Young Hands Concert" - FREE. Concert is indoors.
The band realized, some years back, that within the city of Richmond, many young students don't have the chance to study music. Their parents are unable to afford to buy or even rent an instrument for their child to use and the school system had a very limited number of "to loan" instruments. We decided to find some "old instruments" for these "young hands" and began asking people who had a no-longer-used instrument in their closet/attic to donate it to the band and we have since collect bunches and donated them to the schools in mass at a concert. We've gotten maybe four-hundred over the years and been able to change many students lives.
Our audience is encouraged to bring a no-longer-used musical instrument (or two) to donate to the band. The band will in turn re-donate them to the Richmond City School system who will loan them out each year to children whose parents are unable to purchase or even rent an instrument for their child to use.
Admission Fee: FREE
