Instruments and Storage



While the MIT Concerts Office has a small inventory of instruments available for rental to students who participate in our performance ensembles, it is highly recommended that you bring your own instrument to MIT.  Our instrument collection includes mostly small wind and brass instruments and double basses. Our ensembles have access to an array of large and small percussion, mallet instruments and pianos. We do not own violins, cellos, or a harp. If necessary, arrangements for rental can be made with area companies and retailers. Contact the Concerts Office, 4-243 for availability at


A limited number of Instrument lockers are available to students in our performance ensembles. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may be signed out starting the week before the beginning of classes. Contact for availability.
