The concert is hosted by the School of Rock, and takes place this coming Saturday, April 25th, from noon to 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for ages five and up.
A number of local musicians will be performing in the event, including Lori Barbero (Babes in Toyland), Claudio Rivera (Motion City Soundtrack), and The Current’s own Sean McPherson (Heiruspecs).
Stacey Marmolejo (School of Rock Twin Cities Franchise Owner) says:
“This family-friendly, all ages event shines the spotlight on both the need for music education funding and the benefit of music education as 60 youth musicians and 10 professional musicians perform 6-1/2 hours of music created by Minnesota musicians.”
