Barry Manilow Donates New Yamaha Piano
Once More To Kick Off New Music Instrument Drive For
McLane Middle School
Public Can Trade a New or Gently Used Musical Instrument for Free Tickets to Manilow’s ONE LAST TIME! Concert
TAMPA, FL – Legendary singer-songwriter Barry Manilow is “hitting the road” ONE LAST TIME! and hopes others will follow his philanthropic lead as he brings his Manilow Music Project to the McLane Middle School in Tampa. The pop icon plans to donate a Yamaha piano to launch a local instrument drive during his ONE LAST TIME! Tour. Anyone who brings a donation of a new or gently used musical instrument at the McDonald’s® Ticket Office at AMALIE Arena will receive two free tickets (valid for pre-selected seat locations) for Manilow’s February 4, 2016 concert at AMALIE Arena.
The Manilow Music Project has conducted music instrument drives all over the country to assist local schools with their music programs.
“I’m thrilled to once again bring the gift of music to these kids,” added Manilow.
The McDonald’s® Ticket Office at AMALIE Arena will serve as the base for the instrument drive in Tampa from January 28th through February 4th. The instrument drop off location is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

“We know the importance of music for every student in our schools. We are thrilled to receive this generous donation of musical instruments from Barry Manilow and The Manilow Music Project. It will expand our program for more students and allow them to share in the gift of music,” said Superintendent Jeff Eakins, Hillsborough County Public Schools.
The Manilow Music Project (MMP) is part of The Manilow Fund for Health and Hope. It was formed as a grass roots organization to assist local charities and programs. Its primary focus is to provide musical instruments to high schools and middle schools and to provide music scholarships at universities throughout the US, Canada, and the UK. More information on the Manilow Music Project can be found at http://www.manilowmusicproject.org/.
ONE LAST TIME! Tour is a co-production of BRE Presents and STILETTO Entertainment.
