D’Addario Marks 40 Years of Giving with Concert Benefiting Music Education

    In 1979, Jim and John D’Addario Jr. — two members of the namesake Farmingdale, N.Y.-based stringed-­instrument manufacturing company — established the D’Addario Foundation with Jim’s wife, Janet, as a music showcase for classical guitarists who were struggling to make a living. Forty years later, D’Addario is still a family business — but now it’s helping musicians of all stripes, with a focus on the next generation.
