    I'm seeking charitable donations of musical instruments in playable condition suitable for Renaissance and Baroque music performance. I am a faculty member at Wyoming Catholic College, a private four-year liberal arts college now beginning its fourth academic year. We have a lot of talent in our student body but, because we are so new, we lack discretionary funds to support our students' interest in musical performance. If you have a playable instrument gathering dust and would like to send it to a good home where it will be played often and will help introduce young people to Renaissance and Baroque music, please contact me, Dr. Nancy E. Llewellyn, at nancy.llewellyn@wyomingcatholiccollege.com. You can count on receiving our eternal gratitude plus a letter you can use for tax-deduction purposes. Thank you!
