On Thursday, December 5th, Promenade Music Entertainment (formerly BTF Concerts) and Blain Artist Management will present the third annual ROCK THE SCHOOLS CONCERT, an event that was created in 2011 to support and promote music programs in New York State schools. Due to the growing success of the show, the company has decided to broaden their reach and support the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education programs in US public schools. Live Nation is an official sponsor and Z100 New York, Vita Coco, Dream Water, Thompson LES Hotel and Honest Tea are partners. Last year, the show supported the Fender Music Foundation.
The artist lineup has been released and same as last two years, special surprise guests can be expected. This intimate, acoustic show will feature performances by JOSH KELLEY, BLAKE LEWIS (American Idol), TYLER WARD, MATT WHITE, KEATON SIMONS, with special guests REBECCA PERL and EMILY KATTER playing a few songs. The show will be co-hosted by Z100 New York On-Air Talent TREY MORGAN and CARRIE KEAGAN, Host of Vh1’s Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan.
“We started something amazing a few years ago to show our support and passion for music education programs and it’s grown more and more. We’ve been able to raise thousands of dollars in the last two years for various music education charities and it’s our goal to continue that. No kid should ever be forced to live without learning music. My partners, Chris Trombley, Adam Blain and I, are so thrilled to be supporting the VH1 Save The Music Foundation this year”, says Alaina Bendi, President of Promenade Music Entertainment.
Limited tickets will be sold for the pre-show VIP party that includes priority admission to the concert, complimentary champagne, and the opportunity to mingle with the artist lineup, industry execs and some familiar faces from film and TV.
