Community Members, Musicians Team Up to Seek Donations of Instruments for 2,500 Detroit Schoolkids 

Among the sites where instruments can be donated are the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center in Detroit, Farmington Community Band in Farmington Hills, Marshall Music Co. in West Bloomfield and PNC Bank in Novi.

Harold Kulish and George Nyman — longtime friends sharing an appreciation for hearing music and playing musical instruments — have become focused on providing similar experiences for young people. 

They’re hoping Metro Detroiters will join them in creating opportunities along those lines, especially throughout October.

An idea they had two years ago and communicated to administrators at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) spurred the development of Detroit Harmony, an initiative to provide instruments and teach instrumental skills to Detroit K-12 students in public and private schools. 

Throughout this month, there will be an inaugural drive for 2,500 instruments, new and used. Organizations and businesses have responded by offering drop-off sites. 

The highlight will be Oct. 30 at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, where the Michigan State University’s Spartan Marching Band and the University of Michigan’s Michigan Marching Band play up collection efforts as football fans attend that day’s game.
