Hungry for Music Notes
October 2016
Hungry for Music is an organization that supports music education and cultural enrichment by acquiring and distributing quality musical instruments to underserved children with willing instructors and a hunger to play.
Squeezebox Mania Instrument Drive
Squeezebox Mania Instrument Drive happening now in Austin, Texas! Drop off instruments at Strait Music store locations through October 8.

One Instrument at a Time...

From Azoria's Mom:
"I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart! You have put a huge smile on my daughter's face. That is priceless."

Shining the Light on Charities
We are thrilled to be one of the featured non-profits on "Advocate Avenue" at this year's Luna Light Music and Arts Festival, October 13-16 in Darlington, Maryland.
Many thanks to Share Your Cloud for supporting the Hungry for Music mission.
From Notre Dame to Hungry Hands
We had a very successful instrument drive last month on the Notre Dame campus with the Spirit of Harmony Foundation. We collected a number of instruments -- brass, woodwinds, and drums -- which we are in the process of refurbishing and distributing.

We also received several guitars, and have already delivered two of them to Intonation Music Workshop in Chicago. You can see the happy recipients below!

The Avett Brothers and Cheerwine Legendary Giveback 5 will support Hungry for Music and two other charities, St. Jude's Research Hospital and Wags to Wishes. We are very grateful and looking forward to it. Please spread the word! We hope to see you in Salisbury, Maryland on November 19.

You can also show your support by donating to the Indiegogo fundraiser page.
Music Can... Empower Benefit Concert
Our Savior's Way Lutheran Church in Ashburn, Virginia will be holding a benefit concert and instrument drive on Saturday, October 15. All proceeds will benefit Hungry for Music. Find out more here.
The Demand for Instruments is Growing
Two weeks ago, we delivered seven keyboards, three clarinets, and a flute to three schools in New York (PS 48 and PS 76 in the Bronx, and PS 84 in Manhattan).

Teachers nationwide are desperate for instruments and the demand for our service continues to grow. In the near future, we hope to be able to fill every request!

Last month, we delivered 10 acoustic guitars to the Old Town School of Folk Music's community outreach program. They are doing excellent work in the Chicago area.
HFM Throwback
In 2010, Hungry for Music partnered with the Montgomery County, Maryland Sister Cities project to raise money for instruments for children in Morazán, El Salvador.

In the Spotlight
Last month, when a pipe burst in the New York location where Internal Creations, stored their guitars, most of their inventory was wiped out. Hungry for Music delivered 31 classical guitars to replace the ones that were damaged, allowing their program to begin on time. We are happy to support our friends at Internal Creations and the great work they do.

"Thanks to our wonderful and beautiful partner Hungry For Music. We were able to begin our programming at East Side Community High School right on time last week. Words can not explain how grateful we are for this!!"

Since becoming a non-profit 22 years ago, Hungry for Music has brought the healing quality of music to more than 9,000 children in 47 states and 17 countries through its musical instrument donation program. We appreciate everyone who has helped us along the way and could not fulfill our mission without the generosity of others.
