Nearly 400 instruments collected for Marshall Fire victims


Job :

Travis Albright of the Future Arts Foundation knew something had to be done when hundreds of families lost their entire homes and belongings, including prized musical instruments.

Travis Albright sent out a message to the community about donating new and used instruments to those who have lost everything and the response has been overwhelming. Currently, Albright has accumulated nearly 400 instruments that have been both donated by the community and purchased by the foundation. From now on, anyone who lost an instrument in the fire will be invited to collect new instruments.

The Future Arts Foundation will be hosting a pop-up instrument “shop” for victims of the Marshall Fire on Saturday, February 5. The event will take place from noon to 2 p.m. at the Macky Auditorium on the CU Boulder campus.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation to the project, you can visit the Future Arts Foundation website and all donations over $100 will receive two Bluebird Music Festival tickets.
