Donate a musical instrument
If you have an instrument that is gathering dust on a shelf somewhere, we know a child who can use it. We are looking for used orchestral instruments – strings, woodwind, brass and percussion – to be taken on a new musical journey with a child on a Sistema-inspired programme in England. We are also grateful for donations towards new instruments. Please email Nina Kaye, Trustee of Sistema England, on, to discuss how we can get your instrument into the hands of a young musician.
