CPR'S INSTRUMENT DRIVE COLLECTS MORE THAN 1,300 INSTRUMENTS

CPR's second Annual Instrument Drive was a huge success as listeners from across the state donated their instruments to deserving students. The community-driven event is a part of CPR's efforts to promote music education programs throughout Colorado.

Each instrument is now being carefully refurbished by technicians at the Colorado Institute of Musical Instrument Technology (CIOMIT).”We're happy to contribute our time and resources so that as many instruments as possible make their way into Colorado schools by August,” said Daniel Parker, president of CIOMIT. 9News Education Reporter Nelson Garcia visited CIOMIT in late April to learn more about the repair process.
