WQXR Instrument Drive Kick Off

Join us for the WQXR Instrument Drive Kick Off, featuring

Alan Gilbert, Music Director of the New York Philharmonic; Flutronix; young musicians from the Expeditionary Learning School; and hosts Jeff Spurgeon and Terrance McKnight. Guests are encouraged to bring gently used musical instruments to donate to the cause.


The first person to donate an instrument at the event will win two tickets for the Emerson String Quaret’s May 4 concert at Lincoln Center, and the first 50 to donate will receive 25 percent off at 'wichcraft.


From March 28 to April 7, instrument donations will be accepted at the David Rubenstein Atrium at Lincoln Center. Working with Sam Ash Music Stores and the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, WQXR will repair the instruments and distribute them to deserving music programs in New York City Public Schools.
