M&T Bank will kick off the 50th season of its Plaza Event Series on June 10, and will hold a used musical instrument drive to mark the anniversary.
The noontime concerts will be held weekdays at One M&T Plaza, the bank's headquarters, through Aug. 23.
M&T is collecting used musical instruments that will go to Buffalo Public Schools students who don't have access to their own instruments. Instruments can be dropped off during the first week of performances at the series, or at M&T's branch at One M&T Plaza during regular business hours from the start to the end of the 11-week series.
M&T has created a Spotify list with songs of the summer from the last 50 years, chosen by M&T employees who organized this year’s series.
