 FACET Conducting Instrument Drive in March,
FACET is providing an opportunity for our very musically-minded community to provide used instruments, lesson books, stands, metronomes, etc., to the Rochester Education Foundation (REF). Since 2005, this REF program has supplied over 1,000 donated instruments to the Rochester City School District, enabling students to engage with music and reap all the benefits our families are very familiar with. Many area school communities have supported this mission and we would like to provide the Fairport community, so committed to music, the same opportunity. Bring donations to any concert or play held at Minerva DeLand School or FHS during March (click here for the listing) or contact FACET fairportfacet2@gmail.com to arrange a donation. Donation receipts will be issued.
Thank you for supporting this community initiative!
