As previously announced, this unprecedented concert will be in Dallas at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie on May 17th as Manilow performs songs from his massive catalog of hits. The pop icon is donating a Yamaha piano to launch a local instrument drive for the Dallas Independent School District and is now announcing a special collaboration with Yamaha of Dallas. The Dallas Yahama, dealer known as Metroplex Piano, will be working along side The Manilow Music Project by assisting with the collecting of instruments to ensure a successful donation drive. Darren Speir is spearheading the initiative on behalf Yamaha/Metroplex.
“Yamaha is a wonderful company and we are grateful they chose to join in our fight to keep music in our schools,” states Manilow.
“Metroplex Piano is very proud to be a part of the local musical instrument drive The Manilow Music Project is spearheading in Dallas,” said Darren Speir, President. “We knew about his donation of a Yamaha piano to the local schools here but to be working alongside this wonderful organization that benefits our own local community is even more exciting for Yamaha and specifically Metroplex Piano.”
The Manilow Music Project (MMP) is part of The Manilow Fund for Health and Hope. It was formed as a grass roots organization to assist local charities and programs. Its primary focus is to provide musical instruments to high schools and middle schools and to provide music scholarships at universities throughout the US, Canada, and the UK.
