Attic instruments

One of the first major special projects of the USD 465 Foundation, Attic Instruments has given new life to old musical instruments long stored away and forgotten.

Patrons of the district are encouraged to donate these instruments to the foundation, which finances any needed repairs and then donates the instruments to the district.

In this way, more than 80 instruments have been returned to their original purpose, and are in use by young musicians who otherwise would not have been able to participate in music programs.
