Not playing your instrument? Donate it to a needy kid and enter to win!

Got one of these lying around?

Got one of these lying around?

When local New Orleans transplant, Henri Smith, and his band take the stage Saturday and Sunday at the Larcom Theatre in Beverly, they won’t be the only people in the house with musical instruments.

That’s because members of the audience are bringing instruments to donate to The Musary — a free music lending library “no strings attached” serving Boston’s North Shore, including Cape Ann.

Everyone who brings an instrument to donate will be entered to win a door prize at intermission. The door prizes we have now are:

One night stay at Salem Hawthorne Hotel plus $50 gift certificate for Nathaniel’s (their restaurant).

Spa Day at Maison Esthetique Christiane Bourque Spa in Danvers ($400 value)

Plus a chance to have your Christmas shopping paid for with the 50/50 Raffle!

The Musary is a 501(c)3 on-profit organization that that works to motivate, cultivate and inspire people, especially young people, in our community to get involved in music. It is the Musary’s goal to lend musical instruments to anyone in need, “No Strings Attached.” To learn more about The Musary, borrow an instrument or donate, visit their website.

There’s plenty of time to dig around in your attic or basement and find that no-longer-used instrument so you can put it to good use again this weekend.  And who knows, you might just win something — but even if you don’t win, you’ll know you helped a young person appreciate the power of music, who might not otherwise be able to do so.  And that will feel great!  There are still some seats left for Henri Smith New Orleans Christmas Concert on Saturday at 7:30pm (get them here) — and excellent seats left for the Sunday Matinee at 2pm (get them here).
