Dedicate an instrument:
This is a unique opportunity for individuals or groups to dedicate one of the instruments, with the money raised going into a fund to develop activities related to the musical pocket park, such as recitals, competitions, music lessons for aspiring percussionists and musical fun for all ages.
Each of the 11 musical instruments plus music stand can have a dedication engraved on a permanent plaque. It offers a long-lasting memory of a musician, a band, fan club, music teacher, or other person whose musical connection you feel should be memorialised. It must have a musical connection and there is a charge for this service. Email us for more information at Hello@ChangingSheff.org
