School Of Rock Twin Cities To Perform Music Of Minnesota Bands To Raise Money For Local Non-Profits

School of Rock,known for its live concerts, doesn’t teach music lessons to put on concerts; it puts on concerts to teach lessons. The biggest lesson yet is on the horizon as School of Rock Twin Cities performs its first major fundraising concert.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - March 9, 2015 - PRLog -- School of Rock, the premier performance-based music education program in the world, continually seeks ways to challenge their students to strive for more. This Spring their Minneapolis/St Paul students, ages 8 – 18, will be put to the test as they perform side by side with some of Minnesota’s most notable professional musicians at BEST OF MINNESOTA.

“The concept of having our students perform with local pros was launched in our Portland Oregon School of Rock several years ago and it has become an annual “must-attend” concert for music fans in the northwestern city,” explained Regional Director/Franchise Owner Stacey Marmolejo. “I don’t believe Portland’s music scene has anything on the Twin Cities so I’ve invited the Twin Cities School of Rock student musicians to perform a concert that rivals that produced in Portland.”

School of Rock not only teaches music and performance, but also teaches students to be responsible musicians. One of those responsibilities includes using their talent to give back to the community. The professional musicians who join the students on stage will be excellent role models in this regard.

School of Rock Twin Cities Regional Manager, Nate Beck, is in discussions with more than a dozen of the Twin Cities most iconic musicians and expects to begin announcing the lineup in the next two-three days.

“I’ll do my part to bring you an incredible lineup and I’d like to challenge local music fans to join forces with us to not only create a mind-blowing event but also to raise an unprecedented amount of funds for the local non-profits we ultimately partner with,” said Beck. “Every dollar from ticket sales will go to local non-profits.”
