WSU alumni collect instruments for Detroit students

June 26, 2013

Detroit Public School music students, in dire need of instruments, will begin school in the fall with a crop of violins, clarinets, a drum set and other instruments donated by a college alumni association. The Wayne State University College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts Alumni Association, sponsored a two-day drive that netted 24 instruments for the district. No decision has been made on which schools will get instruments. Joan Smykowski of the Alumni Association was at Wayne State with other board members to accept the donations Wednesday.
