District accepting donations of musical instruments

DAVISON — Is that old snare drum you played in school still collecting dust and taking up space? What about that flute or clarinet — has it been packed away on a shelf since high school?

If you’re ready to part with a musical instrument, please consider donating it to Davison Schools. Donated instruments will be cleaned and refurbished so they can make music once again by our students. Instruments will be given to students who can’t otherwise afford them but are eager to learn how to play.

“In these tough economic times we certainly don’t want to lose focus on what’s best for our kids,” said Assistant Superintendent Eric Lieske. “Any child who expresses an interest in playing a musical instrument should certainly be allowed to explore that possibility.”

In Davison, students have the opportunity to begin learning how to play band and orchestra instruments in the fifth grade.

“Our music programs have been very successful,” said Assistant Superintendent Eric Lieske. “Our students consistently perform well at competition and solo ensemble.”

For the third year in a row, the Davison High School Symphonic Orchestra, Concert Band and Symphonic Band recently earned top ratings of “I” at the district Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association festival.

Individuals who donate a musical instrument will be recognized by the Board of

Education and will receive a letter acknowledging their contribution signed by the Superintendent.

Instruments can be dropped off at the district’s administrative offices, 1490 N. Oak Road.

Details: Call 810-591-0808. — G.G.
