Do you hear what we hear?

JAZZ.FM91’s award-winning Holiday Heroes Instrument Drive is under way for the eighth year. With each donation of a gently used instrument our goal of creating non-silent nights for aspiring young musicians in 2020 comes a step closer.

With the support of…

In partnership with Long & McQuade Musical Instruments and FedEx, we’re asking listeners to become Holiday Heroes by donating their musical instruments in search of a new home. All instruments will be donated to Valley Park Middle School in Toronto’s Thorncliffe Park.

We can accept instruments by special arrangement in early January. Please contact JAZZ.FM91 operations director Michael Booth at for details.
