To be quite blunt, you are responsible for your program, even if their financial decisions made in the past weren't good ones. My first year teaching, I was slapped with a repair bill that took up my entire year's repair budget because the previous director didn't file purchase orders for summer repair (or any of the yearly repairs, actually) using the previous year's budget.
Pay what you can, when you can. It may not be a bad idea to approach the school board for a special allotment given the situation was one you inherited. The music company wants to be paid, and as soon as possible. If this prevents you from doing business with them, however, they will work with you on a payment plan.
