Barry Manilow Donates New Piano to Kick Off Instrument Drive for Gwinnett County Public Schools
Pop icon Barry Manilow is donating a brand new Yamaha piano to launch a local instrument drive for Gwinnett County Public Schools. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument to the Gwinnett Center will receive two free tickets (valid for pre-selected seat locations) for Manilow’s April 27th concert at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, GA.
“I’m thrilled to be able to help bring the gift of music to these kids,” states Manilow.
The Gwinnett Center will be the base for the instrument drive in Duluth, from now through April 27th. The instrument drop off location is open between 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through Friday. If there is an event on Saturday or Sunday the box office opens at 12:00 PM.
