We Are Instrumental

Christmas has come early for some schools and their music programs in the Adirondacks, who are sharing the gift of music, just in time for the holidays. They are receiving used musical instruments through a non-profit founded by Skidmore College Music Professor and music composer Evan Mack, and Ticonderoga Central School’s Band Director Michael Iturrino. We Are Instrumental collects musical instruments, some donated and others purchased, and gives them to school districts. This fall, We Are Instrumental was able to donate nearly 150 instruments that came from Barcone’s Music in Kingston, New York. After 131-years, the Barcone family is closing their music store, and delivered dozens of trumpets, trombones, saxophones and cellos to We Are Instrumental to distribute to Adirondack school districts to replace, repair and restock their musical instruments, free of charge. The program is collecting funds to help schools pay to fix their instruments while also looking for additional donations. More Info: www.evanmack.com/weareinstrumental
