Pop Superstar To Perform ONE LAST TIME! In Louisville On June 5
Public Can Trade a New or Gently Used Musical Instrument for Free Tickets to Manilow’s ONE LAST TIME! Concert
[Louisville, KY] – Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow is “hitting the road” ONE LAST TIME! and hopes others will follow his philanthropic lead as he donates a Yamaha Keyboard to launch a local instrument drive during his ONE LAST TIME! Tour for the Jefferson County Public Schools. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument to the KFC Yum! Center Box Office will receive two free tickets (valid for pre-selected seat locations) for Manilow’s June 5 concert in Louisville, KY.
“I know firsthand how invaluable music education is,” said Manilow. “It is a privilege for me to help bring the gift of music to these kids,” he continued.
KFC Yum! Center will be the base for the instrument drive in Louisville, from now through June 5, 2015. The instrument drop off location at KFC YUM! Center is open between Mon-Fri 10a-5p.
“We are tremendously grateful for the generosity of the Barry Manilow Music Project,” said Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Donna Hargens. “Research shows that student engagement with music and the fine arts promotes key 21st century skills, including creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical thinking. The arts teach vital modes of seeing, imagining, inventing, and thinking while fortifying key skills such as visual-spatial abilities, reflection, self-criticism, and the willingness to experiment and learn from mistakes. We appreciate Mr. Manilow’s support in providing additional music education opportunities or JCPS students.”
The Manilow Music Project (MMP) is part of The Manilow Fund for Health and Hope. 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.

Tickets for Manilow’s ONE LAST TIME! concert are available online at Manilow.com or ticketmaster.com, in person at the KFC Yum! Center Box Office, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
