Pop Superstar To Perform ONE LAST TIME! At Barclays Center In Brooklyn On His June 17 Birthday
Public Can Trade a New or Gently Used Musical Instrument for Free Tickets to Manilow’s ONE LAST TIME! Concert
[New York, NY] – 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 New York Department of Education. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument to the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center will receive two free tickets (valid for pre-selected seat locations) for Manilow’s June 17 concert in the music legend’s hometown of Brooklyn, NY.
“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.”
American Express Box Office at Barclays Center will be the base for the instrument drive in Brooklyn, from now through June 17, 2015. The instrument drop off location at the Barclays Center is open between Mon-Fri 12p-6p and Sat 12p-4p.
“Strong music and performing arts programs engage our students, enrich their academic education, and bring joy to families and our entire school community,” said Holger Carrillo, principal of the High School for Enterprise, Business, and Technology at the Grand Street Campus, which is receiving the piano. “We thank Mr. Manilow for his generous donation, and look forward to our students using this piano for years to come.”
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.
