Following the successful instrument drives at Ace Hotel properties in Chicago and Pittsburgh, the D’Addario Foundation and Hungry for Music have partnered with the Ace Hotel in DTLA for a west coast instrument collection event.

The D’Addario Foundation, Hungry for Music and Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony Foundation supports independent not-for-profits that develop free, immersive music instruction programs in neighborhoods hit hardest by budget cuts.

“Lack of instruments in community-based music education programs means children on waiting lists, hoping for spots in these vital programs that also many times serve as a safe haven for at-risk kids. Donating an instrument is a very direct way to make an instant impact,” says Suzanne D’Addario Brouder, executive director of the D’Addario Foundation.

On July 29th, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the D’Addario Foundation and Hungry for Music will be on hand on the beautiful rooftop of the Ace Hotel in downtown LA to collect gently used instruments. Upwards of 100 instruments have been collected at past events so there is no doubt that the LA community can reach or surpass this goal.

D’Addario Brouder adds: “We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with the Ace Hotels and appreciate their amazing commitment to supporting music education in their local communities.”
