Each Tour City Nominating Their Favorite Music Teacher for VIP Experience to Show Including Tickets and Back Stage Award Presentation with Barry Manilow


NEW YORK, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Music icon Barry Manilow announced today his Manilow Music Project will once again award a deserving music teacher in each city of his summer arena tour.

 Every venue on Manilow's tour has participated by suggesting schools and teachers in their area that they wish to be considered for this award. In each city, the winning teacher will receive a 5K cash award and another 5K in "Manilow bucks" to purchase music instruments for their school's music program.

 "It is wonderful to partner with our concert venues to identify schools and music teachers in their neighborhoods that deserve this small token of my gratitude, said Manilow. "Many school music programs have either been terminated, or their funds have been severely depleted. I always want to do my part through The Manilow Music Project to keep music in schools."

 The Manilow Music Project is pleased to open voting to anyone who has ever been moved by the power of music to vote for their favorite music teacher. It has given away over ten million dollars' worth of funds and music instrument donations.

 Fri August 12th – Allentown, PA – PPL Center

Lawrence Flynn of Louis E. Dieruff, Allen Frank of Liberty, Edward Hong of Whitehall, Jason Lerew of Parkland, Mike Moran of Freedom, Eric Moser of William Allen High School, Julia Wallace of Emmaus High School, Rachel Reinecke of Salisbury, John Shilanskas of Easton Area High School.
