Gasparilla Music Foundation musical instrument drive kickoff Monday, Nov. 14

St. Petersburg College is partnering with the Gasparilla Music Foundation (GMF) to support music and education through the community outreach program, Recycled Tunes.

The music instrument drive will kickoff at noon on Monday, Nov. 14 at SPC St. Petersburg/Gibbs Campus, room SC-134, 6605 5th Ave N.

At the event, students from Lealman Innovation Academy will be surprised with donated instruments from GMF at an exclusive drum clinic by Patrick Hernly, SPC Music Industry/Recording Arts (MIRA) Chairman.

The week of Nov. 14-18 at SPC locations, community members can donate gently used instruments. The instruments will be refurbished by Recycled Tunes and then donated to Pinellas County Schools’ music programs.
