The Garrett Music Academy has been a long-time supporter of Calvert Library through sponsorship of Calvert’s Next Idol, Teen Band Nights, gifts of gaming systems to draw teens into the library, and most recently, a donation of four brand new instruments to raffle off just in time for the holiday gift-giving season.
The donations include a trombone, a full-size violin (or a fiddle if you prefer), a flute and a trumpet. The instruments are donated through the Garrett Music Academy school band rental program but are in fact, brand new.
They each come with a protective carrying case as well. Raffle tickets are $1/each or six for $5 and you can mix or match what instrument for which you want to try. Tickets are available at all Calvert Library locations and the instruments are also traveling from branch to branch if you want to visit and see one in person. The drawing will be held Nov. 23.
