Manilow donates piano, designates instrument drive for FWCS

Friday, February 22, 2013 - 12:24 pm

Barry Manilow has launched a musical instrument drive to benefit Fort Wayne Community Schools in advance of his April 18 concert at Memorial Coliseum. To jumpstart the drive, he has donated a Yamaha piano to the effort.

Instruments may be dropped off 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Coliseum, 4000 Parnell Ave. Anyone who donates an instrument will receive two free tickets, valid in pre-selected seat locations, to the April 18 concert.

“I’m thrilled to be able to help bring the gift of music to these kids,” Manilow said in a news release.
