WESTPORT -

A music advocacy group with a passion for classical music is making sure every local music program has instruments for students.

Music for Youth held a collection drive in Westport Sunday morning for High Horizons and Multicultural Magnet Schools in Bridgeport.

Organizers say that because of budget cuts, they need to update their equipment.

All instruments collected were in good condition.
