The Tri-State Community Orchestra in Dothan needs some new percussion instruments, specifically a new Marimba and Timpani drums.

The volunteer orchestra operates exclusively on donations, and is looking to raise about $3,000, to replace the instruments.

They're hoping that while you're surfing the web on Monday for a good deal, you'll consider starting your Giving Tuesday on a good note.

"Any percussion equipment that anyone would like to donate that's probably our biggest need," said the President of the Board of Directors for the Tri-State Community Orchestra, Tricia Marotz.

"But we also need volunteer musicians, people who play, to come join our group and make our sound bigger and better. Always when we have more musicians we're bigger and better," Marotz said.

And there are other ways to support the Tri-State Community Orchestra.

You can hear some of your favorite Christmas songs at their "Holiday Pops Concert."

It's on Friday, December 20th, at the Cultural Arts Center.

Tickets are $10.
