St. Vrain’s Fine Arts department is hosting its fourth annual musical instrument collection drive. Members of the community are invited to donate gently used instruments to St. Vrain Valley Schools’ music program and receive a donation receipt from the St. Vrain Valley Schools Education Foundation.

There are two drop-off dates at the Lincoln School building on 619 Bowen St. in Longmont.

  • Tuesday, September 26 | 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Friday, September 29 | 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Donated instruments are housed in the classroom for students to use during class or available for them to rent long-term. Additional instruments allow families to try out an instrument without making a purchase. More unique donations enhance the district’s music programming by introducing new styles of instruments into the classroom.

After the drive, the Office of Fine Arts ensures all donations are cleaned, tuned, and repaired. Instruments are distributed to schools by a raffle system, which is held on a teacher professional development day.

At this time, St. Vrain Valley Schools is not in need of upright pianos or keyboards. Please contact St. Vrain’s Fine Arts Coordinator, Janay Bird, for details at [email protected] or 303-702-7916.
