Coastal Concerts administers Toot Your Own Horn, a used instrument collection program to benefit Sussex County music students. The program receives usable musical instruments which are no longer in use and donates them, primarily, to the elementary school music education program in the Cape Henlopen School DonateDistrict. Instruments which cannot be used in that program may be donated to other school programs or to students in Delaware non-profit music education programs such as First State Strings.
