Donating instruments help out tremendously in the community. It could be used to introduce a child to wonderful world of creating music.
One of Opera NOVA’s duties to the community is collecting the donated instruments for local deserving schools. Donations help students enrich their lives with the joy of music.
We have sent instruments as far as Haiti!
Donating them to Opera NOVA, an IRS 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, will enable the donor to receive an appropriate tax acknowledgement.
Here's a letter from one of our recipients of a donated instrument here in Arlington, VA:
I finally got around to checking out the instrument that you left for me at Patrick Henry a few months ago. I was super excited to see that it is a small viola - not a violin!!!! It is rare that a viola gets donated - but to have one that is small enough for an elementary student to play is so exciting.
Thank you so much for all that you have done for our school!!! Your donation of this small student viola is much appreciated!!!
