Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow hopes others will once again follow his philanthropic lead as he donates a Yamaha piano to launch a local instrument drive for the Indianapolis Public Schools. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument to the Bankers Life Fieldhouse Box Office will receive two free tickets (valid for pre-selected seat locations) for Manilow’s August 3, 2012 concert in Indianapolis.

“I’m thrilled to be able to help bring the gift of music to these kids,” states Manilow.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse will be the base for the instrument drive in Indianapolis, from now through August 3, 2012.

“We are excited and most appreciative that Mr. Manilow chose IPS to launch this drive for donated instruments from the community,” said Superintendent Dr. Eugene G. White. “IPS has over several years worked to rebuild its instrumental music program in our elementary schools to give our students a good, solid foundation in music education. The donation of new and or gently used instruments will help us expand our classroom efforts.”

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. More information on the Manilow Music Project can be found at http://www.manilowmusicproject.org/.

Tickets are available online at http://manilow.com/ or http://ticketmaster.com/, in person at the Box Office (317-917-2727), or by calling 800-745-3000.

With worldwide record sales exceeding 80 million, Barry Manilow is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time with 47 top 40 hits. Manilow has produced, arranged, and released over 40 albums over the course of his career.
