Share the Music
Share the Music is a joint venture of the Illinois Symphony Orchestra, Pratt Music Foundation, and The Music Shoppe located in Normal. Share the Music accepts instrument donations (primarily violin, viola and cello); the Music Shoppe refurbishes them, and the Pratt Music Foundation loans them on a complimentary annual basis to music students in need. This initiative is sponsored by the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, and the McLean County Arts Center.
