"Play It Forward" to Help Local Kids

For many of us, it’s difficult to imagine a world without music. But for countless children in Cleveland, that is the reality. Let’s change that reality and work together to get instruments into the lives of Cleveland’s children.

The first instrument donation drive is a pilot for Ward 9 children in Glenville, with the intention of expanding the drive in the future. The goal of Play It Forward Cleveland! is to give children the pride, the joy, and the many academic and social benefits music-making provides.

A day without music is like a day without sunshine! With the support of the community, the sun will shine for Glenville’s children.

The community will have two opportunities to drop off previously loved, playable instruments at Severance Hall, home of The Cleveland Orchestra, located at 11001 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, in University Circle. A drive-up collection area will be set up on East Boulevard near Euclid Avenue on Sunday, Feb. 17 from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Saturday, March 9 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
