CAPITOL RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist LUKE BRYAN hosted the KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING ALL STARS CONCERT presented by SUNTRUST BANK last night (02/01) in NASHVILLE at the SCHERMERHORN SYMPHONY CENTER. The show was presented by the NASHVILLE ALLIANCE FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION, along with the COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION honoring the best elementary, middle, and high school music programs in METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
The ALL STARS CONCERT featured some of the best of METRO NASHVILLE'S 139 elementary, middle, and high schools. Performers include the CROFT MIDDLE SCHOOL ORCHESTRA, DUPONT TYLER MIDDLE SCHOOL ADVANCED BAND, JONES PAIDEIA ELEMENTARY SUPER STARS, MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. MAGNET ORCHESTRA, NASHVILLE SCHOOL OF THE ARTS JAZZ BAND, the PEARL-COHN HIGH SCHOOL CHOIR, and a special lobby performance by MOUNT VIEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL RENAISSANCE performers. At one point BRYAN was accompanied on guitar by NASHVILLE SCHOOL OF THE ARTS senior SAM HUNTER.
The NASHVILLE ALLIANCE has partnered with CMA's KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING program since 2006 and has provided more than 4,000 musical instruments and music labs for nearly 70 METRO public schools. To date, the program has raised more than $4.7 million from the proceeds of the annual CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL to purchase much-needed musical instruments and equipment.
