(Ithaca) The Fine Arts Booster Group (FABG) through its “Play it Again, Ithaca” program collects used musical instruments to be distributed to students in the Ithaca City School District (ICSD). These instruments become part of the ICSD collection of instruments available on loan 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 and orchestra. The ICSD arts program allows students to take free instrumental lessons during school hours and participate in the school band or orchestra. FABG’s “Play it Again, Ithaca” enhances the district’s existing resources and enables the community to be “green” with this reuse of a household’s donated instrument.

Consider donating a used instrument or donating money for the purchase of instruments through the FABG. Instruments donated are repaired and placed instruments into the hands of young musicians in the school district.

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 president@fabgithaca.org or click on the tab above “Give -Time, Donations, Instruments”. 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.
