Coral Springs, FL, January 07, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Children and adults from the School of Rock in Coral Springs and West Broward have been selected to join the band, Foreigner, when they perform at Hard Rock Live, in Hollywood, Florida this Wednesday. They will sing along as the band plays its classic hit "I Want To Know What Love Is." Participants will also be selling Foreigner CD’s and raffle tickets to concertgoers before and after the show. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Foreigner’s charity partner, The GRAMMY Foundation, which raises funds for high school music programs, nationwide.
The School of Rock is a performance-based after school music education program. Students learn from professional musicians in an interactive environment combining weekly one-on-one lessons with structured group rehearsals culminating in a live performance in front of real crowds in real rock venues.
"I am so proud & honored that we have been selected," says Andrew Musselman, Music Director of the School of Rock Coral Springs. "The vocalists have been working hard under the direction of vocal coach, Norma Segrera. Everyone’s beaming with excitement. Our school community is also delighted about the opportunity we have… It will be a new and interesting experience."
"This is a dream come true for our students. The opportunity for them to sing on stage with the classic rock band and also help raise funds for a great cause is a moment they will always remember," says Christian Davis, Music Director of the West Broward location.
Typically, the School of Rock House Bands performs at various events and fund raisers throughout South Florida. While they have done numerous collaborations, this is the first time that they have had the chance to back up a legendary rock band.
