FABG Volunteers Needed For Musical Instrument Donation Program

Volunteers Needed for the “Play It again, Ithaca” (PIAI) Musical Instrument Recycling Program

If you have questions or are interested in becoming a PIAI volunteer, please send an email to president@fabgithaca.org

The motto of the Fine Arts Booster Group (FABG) is “all the arts for all the kids.” To this end, the goal of the Play it Again, Ithaca (PIAI) program is to get unused instruments out from under beds and out of the attics of folks in the community, make them playable (PIAI helps with repairs), and give the recycled instruments to the Ithaca City School District (ICSD) so the instruments can be “played again” by children in need. More instruments means more children in our school district can participate in the musical arts. Hundreds of refurbished instruments have made their way into the hands of children since the program was started 20 years ago. The current PIA Coordinator is stepping down so the FABG is seeking new volunteers who can take over this important program. You do not need to have any knowledge of musical instruments to be a PIAI volunteer or Coordinator. You just need to have enthusiasm for the program and be willing to help coordinate activities involved in the donation process.
