The D’Addario Foundation will host an additional instrument collection event at the Ace Hotel in downtown Chicago on December 1 from 4p.m. to 7 p.m.

D’Addario is partnering with the Ace Hotel as well as Hungry for Music, Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony, Instruments in the Cloud, and Chicago Federation of Musicians to accept donations of instruments that will in turn be repaired and given to students in need in many of the amazing programs throughout Chicago and beyond. The Ace Hotel is located at 311 North Morgan Street.

“We have seen a significant uptick in requests for instruments from the many music programs that apply for Foundation support. We are determined to fulfill the needs of these programs as completely as possible to ensure that kids are not being turned away for lack of resources,” says Suzanne D’Addario Brouder, executive director of the D’Addario Foundation. “By collaborating with amazing organizations, we maximize our collective goal of making it possible for more children to have access to transformative music education. The programs we support are there for kids in so many ways becoming a life-line and safe haven.”

For those who have a musical instrument to donate but aren’t able to participate on December 1, the D’Addario Foundation encourages finding a need for their gently used musical instrument by using Instruments in the Cloud, an online giving platform designed to connect instrument donors directly with classrooms in need.
