There’s nothing like the faces of young musicians unwrapping brand-new instruments for the first time — in this case, 67 of them, a gift from StubHub and the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.

At an assembly last Monday, MS 202 music teacher Justin Wolf, right, surprised students at the Lindenwood school, revealing stacks of horns, flutes and saxophones worth nearly $70,000 hidden behind the auditorium curtain.

The new instruments replace some that are more than 30 years old, said Wolf, and now kids no longer have to share them.
