Play It Again Program
The John Walter Band supports the local community with its unique Play-It-Again program. Throughout the year, members collect and refurbish gently used instruments and equipment and redistribute these to local schools. If you would like to participate and have a brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument that is no longer in use, please select CONTACT US and someone from the band will arrange to pick-up your donation and see that it is placed back in service.
Please select Support Us to make a donation to help offset refurbishing costs.
The band awards music scholarship(s) to deserving graduating seniors living in Cape May, involved in any music or performing arts discipline. Amount and number of Awards is determined by the band’s Scholarship Committee and based on availability of funds. The John Walter Band and its members would like to congratulate its 2023 Scholarship Winners!
