The Westbrook Music Department is holding an "instrument drive" for the 2015-2016 school year. We are collecting currently unused instruments that people would like to donate to the band program. These instruments will be repaired and refurbished and put in the hands of beginning band students who may not otherwise be able to obtain an instrument. Donations will be appraised and donors will be sent a receipt detailing the value of their tax deductible donated instrument.
Currently, instruments may be dropped off at Westbrook High School in the main office or at the upcoming Westbrook High School Fall Concert on Monday, November 16th at 7:00 pm at the Westbrook Performing Arts Center. Thank you for your continued support of music in our schools!
