Every instrument has a story, and YTV tries to make sure those stories are told (receive it-carry it-pass it on).
When someone makes a donation to YTV’s instrument collection, we ask them to write up a description about where and who the instrument came from.
Past YTV Presidents/board members Bill Drislane (organizer) and Yasi Zeichner (musician), current Secretary and board member Duncan Yandell (musician) and more friends and neighbors!
