Obtain donations of used or unwanted musical instruments for children in a music band, orchestra or class who can not participate because of the cost.
Within 3 months of Henry For Music's partnership with Communities in Schools-Henry, we received donations of 13 instruments (trumpets, clarinets, trombones, keyboards, violins and guitars). Several scholars have now been placed into a middle school band allowing participation in 2016. Since then, over 250 of instruments have been placed in the hands of middle students.
A surplus of donated strings instruments sparked the 2018 launch of the Youth Orchestra United Program in which students Pre-K through High School public- and home-schooled students participate receiving musical instruction from Henry For Music Teaching Artists. Youth Orchestra United is Henry County’s first community orchestra and its members have performed at various virtual and in-person community concerts and events including Henry County’s Bicentennial Picnic Celebration in 2021.
Instruments qualified by our music store partners as "unserviceable" have been designated as "parts for use" donations and/or donated by Henry For Music to local artists for charity and public awareness events.
The Henry County Fine Arts Education Department is partnering with Henry For Music to bring music to every Henry County school within the next several years.
