The Select and Concerts Bands of the Diocese of Rochester, led by music director Frank Anselmo, are asking for donations of “used but usable” musical instruments to equip their members.
Instruments are being sought for two purposes: to provide instruments to students who cannot afford them, and to provide orchestra instruments not commonly possessed by students. Many students have applied to the music program, but cannot participate because they cannot afford instruments.
Anselmo said he is particularly seeking orchestra instruments that are uncommon for middle-school students.
Anyone wishing to donate an instrument or funds to purchase an instrument should contact Anselmo at 585/429-6010.
