Philharmonic Friends Instrument Loan Program

The Friends established the Instrument Loan program in the early 1990’s. The goal of this volunteer driven program is to insure that any child who wants to learn an instrument will have one available to use for lessons, either privately or within a school music curriculum. There are more than 200 instruments available on a first come, first served basis. The majority of the inventory consists of string instruments in various sizes along with a few brass and woodwind instruments. Maintenance Fees are for the duration of the school year with discounts available for placement of multiple instruments in the same family.

Fee Schedule
String Instrument $99.00
Brass & Woodwinds $81.00
The fee for a summer term is $20.00
For students who play in the Youth Symphony, the fee is $75.00 for the school year.

In 2009, the Volunteer Council of the League of American Orchestras selected the Friends’ Instrument Loan Program to receive a Gold Book Online Award of Excellence, one of nine such awards given nationally. Winning projects, which are submitted to Gold Book Online, are selected based on scope, goals and overall results.

Instrument Playground

The Philharmonic Friends host an interactive playground where children can hear, touch and even play some of the orchestral instruments. Instrument playgrounds are scheduled at various times throughout the year.
