For the second year in a row the COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION is seeking volunteers from the MIDDLE TENNESSEE community to assist with 2011 CMA MUSIC FEST. The community benefits in return, as half of the net proceeds from the festival will be donated to support music education in METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS through CMA's "KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING," program.
"Through the generous help of last year's nearly 300 volunteers, we were able to give $2.9 million back to the community by supporting music education and flood relief," said CMA CEO STEVE MOORE. "Our volunteers stepped up as ambassadors for NASHVILLE, and we look forward to once again turning their benevolent efforts into much needed funding for the music students in METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS."
2011 CMA MUSIC FEST is being held THURSDAY through SUNDAY, JUNE 9th-12th, in downtown NASHVILLE. Anyone interested in volunteering can attend CMA's VOLUNTEER FAIR from 4-7p (CT), THURSDAY, APRIL 7th or 10a-2p (CT) on SATURDAY, APRIL 9th, at the CMA office at One Music Circle S., NASHVILLE, TN 37203.
