We asked - YOU responded!
From the end of 2018 through February 2019, we held a collection campaign in Belgium, asking people to donate their prized collection of their old artillery shells. Every decorated shell was photographed to preserve their place in history.
It was a resounding success! 546 artillery shells were collected (we didn't count all the gun casings!), for a total of 989 kg (2180 lbs) = 116% of the required minimum to create 193 saxophones. Shells used on the battlefields of war have changed from weapons of hatred to saxophones of harmony.
