Location(s): 
With worldwide sales of more than 80 million records, Barry Manilow’s success is a benchmark in popular music. He is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time, according to R&R (Radio & Records) and Billboard Magazines. Rolling Stone crowned him “a giant among entertainers… the showman of our generation.” Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters stated that "Barry Manilow is the coolest motherf***er in the world," and Frank Sinatra summed up Manilow best when Ol’ Blue Eyes told the British press, “He’s next.”
Music is Manilow’s passion -- both in the studio and in the classroom.

While he has released over 40 albums, Manilow has also raised millions of dollars through his Manilow Music Project. In response to drastic budget cuts in arts programs across the U.S., the Manilow Music Project is keeping the music alive by ensuring that middle and high school students have instruments in their hands to use in their music classes.

BARRY MANILOW DONATES NEW YAMAHA KEYBOARD TO KICK Off MUSIC INSTRUMENT DRIVE FOR JOHN E. FORD PK-8 SCHOOL

Public Can Trade a New or Gently Used Musical Instrument for Free Tickets to Manilow’s February 18th in Jacksonville, FL

[Jacksonville, FL]– Pop music icon Barry Manilow hopes others will follow his philanthropic lead as he brings his Manilow Music Project to John E. Ford PK-8 School in Jacksonville, FL. The legendary singer/songwriter plans to donate a Yamaha keyboard to launch a local music instrument drive. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument will receive 2 free tickets (valid for pre-selected seat locations on a first come first serve basis) for Manilow’s February 18th concert at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts in Jacksonville

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 Tom Bush Family of Dealerships Box Office at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts will be the drop off point for the instrument drive now through February 18th. Hours are Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

“If we do not inspire a love of the arts in our children, there will be no more arts for our children to love,” said Staci Kelly Pendry, General Music Teacher. “The Manilow Music project helps to give all students access to that inspiration through their love of music and generosity. We are honored to accept this thoughtful gift on behalf of the John E. Ford PK-8 community.”


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.
