Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument and drops it off at Gwinnett Center will receive two free tickets for the April 27 “Manilow on Broadway” concert at the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth. The tickets are valid for pre-selected seat locations.
Manilow is donating a new Yamaha piano to launch a musical instrument drive for Gwinnett County Public Schools.
“I’m thrilled to be able to help bring the gift of music to these kids,” stated Manilow in a press release issued by Gwinnett Arena.
Gwinnett Center is serving as the base for the instrument drive now through April 27. The instrument drop off location is open between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If there is an event on Saturday or Sunday, the box office opens at noon.
The musical instruments collected here will be given to GCPS students with the school system deciding who will receive them based on need.
The instrument drive is sponsored by The Manilow Music Project (MMP), a part of The Manilow Fund for Health and Hope. MMP’s primary focus is to provide musical instruments to high schools and middle schools and to provide music scholarships at universities throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Manilow, whose worldwide record sales exceed 80 million, is ranked as the top Adult Contemporary chart artist of all time with 50 Top 40 hits. He has produced, arranged, and released more than 40 albums over the course of his career.
