  • Play It Again is an instrument recycling program that was created to give the gift of music to students in Acadiana. We collect instruments that are no longer being used and repair them so they can be gifted to band programs in Acadiana public schools. We work directly with band directors to identify needs and organize donations to build band program inventory. All donated instruments stay in the band program so that students can benefit from year to year!
