Local Music Teachers Nominated For Barry Manilow Music Teacher Award

Music icon Barry Manilow announced his Manilow Music Project will once again award a deserving music teacher in each city during his summer arena tour which includes Reading.

The Grammy award winner previously announced a one-night-only concert set for Friday, August 18, at Reading’s Santander Arena.

The Santander Arena participated in the contest by helping the Manilow Music Project secure nominations for deserving music teachers in their area for this award. In each city, the winning teacher will receive 5K cash award and another 5K in “Manilow bucks” presented by Barry Manilow to purchase musical instruments for their school’s music program. The winner will also receive VIP tickets to the concert.

“It is wonderful to partner with our concert venues to identify schools and music teachers in their neighborhoods that deserve this small token of my gratitude, said Manilow. “Many school music programs have either been terminated, or their funds have been severely depleted. I always want to do my part through The Manilow Music Project to keep music in schools.”

Voting is now open and closes Friday, July 21. The winner will be announced via press release on Tuesday, August 1.

The Manilow Music Project is pleased to open voting to anyone who has ever been moved by the power of music to vote for their favorite music teacher. It has given away over ten million dollars’ worth of funds and music instrument donations.
