(WICHITA, Kan.) — Singer-songwriter Barry Manilow has entertained generations of fans. Now he's hoping those fans help inspire a child's love of music.
Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument to the INTRUST Bank Arena box office will receive 2 free tickets for his June 7 concert.
"It is a privilege to be able to help kids by giving them the gift of music," says Manilow.
Manilow's non-profit organization, the Manilow Music Project, is working to put musical instruments into the hands of Wichita Public School District students.
The INTRUST Bank Arena will be the base for the instrument drive in Wichita. It will go from May 18 through June 7. The instrument drop off location is open between 10am - 6pm Monday through Friday, and 10am-3pm on Saturday.
"This generous contribution from the Manilow Music Project will certainly enhance the Wichita Public Schools' musical instrument inventory. Thank you for supporting our district philosophy of making instruments available to middle and high school students," said USD 259 Superintendent John Allison.
