In honor of our newest exhibition Amplified: Art, Music, Power, the National Liberty Museum is hosting an instrument donation drive benefiting the Gift of Music program at Musicopia. Musicopia’s Gift of Music program collects, repairs, and places gently-used band and orchestral instruments in playable or reasonably repairable condition in schools and with students who are eager to play and are in need of a quality instrument.
To donate an instrument:
Each donation brought by a guest is eligible for an Admission Pass voucher, which will admit one General Admission adult and will be valid up to two weeks later.
Musicopia’s mission is to provide equitable access to music education and enrichment, encouraging self-confidence, global awareness, dedication and joy in Pre-K to 12th grade students and their communities. Musicopia has served more than 393,000 students since its founding 50 years ago.
Through a teaching roster of more than 150 professional ensembles and solo musicians of the highest caliber, Musicopia helps Pre-K-12th grade students explore and develop their musical interests, learn to play an instrument, and perform alongside enthusiastic peers through in-school assemblies, workshops, and residencies, and long-term ensembles including the after-school Musicopia String Orchestra and Musicopia Drumlines. With a goal to inspire a love of music that will last a lifetime, Musicopia’s programs represent musical styles and traditions from around the world including classical, jazz, Latin, African, Brazilian, Middle Eastern, opera, hip hop, rock/pop and others.
