ALBANY FRIENDS of MUSIC
The Albany Friends of Music is a volunteer organization of parents, teachers, and community members who support music education in the Albany City Schools. Our mission is to promote music education at all levels by raising revenues to provide state-of-the-art music programs and to open up greater music education opportunities for all students. All contributions will help support Albany’s music education programs. We plan to:
· provide financial assistance for musical events and field trips.
· fund a Music Technology Lab at Albany High School.
· purchase musical instruments and other equipment for student use.
· promote opportunities for the Albany community to share the benefits of our students’ musical talents.
Please consider making a contribution to the Albany Friends of Music fund.
Contributions can be returned to Josephine Amore at Arbor Hill Elementary School: 1 Arbor Dr. Albany, NY 12207 ~
(518) 475-6625. Please make checks payable to AFE/Albany Friends of Music.
Share Your Love of Music!
The Albany Fund for Education is collecting musical instruments to put in the hands of Albany’s students. All donated instruments will be refurbished and restored to playing condition before given to a child.
Recycle a Musical Instrument You No Longer Need!
New and used instruments (with the exception of pianos and organs) will be gratefully accepted. We especially need student-sized band and orchestra instruments. You can drop off your instrument before the end of the school year at Hackett Middle School c/o Ed Newell, Band Instructor. OR call 518- 207 5572 or email AlbanyAFE@gmail.com and we will pick up your instrument.
The Albany Fund for Education is a registered 501-c3 nonprofit organization. Please provide your name and address so we can send a letter thanking you and acknowledging your donation for tax purposes.
(This project is supported by a generous contribution from Aimee Allaud, a supporter of music in our schools; the Stewart’s Shops; John Keal Music and the Albany Fund for Education.)
