Play it Again, Ithaca” – Used Musical Instruments Needed

The Fine Arts Booster Group (FABG) through its “Play it Again, Ithaca” program collects used musical instruments to be distributed for student use across the Ithaca City School District (ICSD). These donated instruments become part of the ICSD collection of instruments available for free use to students in the district.

FABG strives to provide ICSD students who might not otherwise have access to instruments an opportunity to participate in band or orchestra. The ICSD arts program allows students to take free instrumental lessons during school hours and participate in the school musical groups. FABG’s “Play it Again, Ithaca” enhances the district’s existing resources and enables the community to be “green” with this reuse of donated instruments.

Consider donating a used instrument through the FABG. Instruments donated are repaired and placed into the hands of young musicians in the school district. In 2015-2016, 22 instruments and one instrument case were received and refurbished by FABG for use by district students.

To donate an instrument, make a financial contribution or learn more about the FABG, please contact the Fine Arts Boosters at (607) 256-4734 or or check our website at Donations are tax deductible.

The FABG is an affiliate of the Ithaca Public Education Initiative (IPEI). IPEI is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that works to develop supportive community and private sector relationships with the Ithaca City School District.
