“School of Rock,” the Broadway musical that is playing at the Peace Center Dec. 5-10, is all about students and the transformative power of music.
While the show is in Greenville, the Peace Center is partnering with The Music Club of Greenville to collect new and used musical instruments that will be donated to local schools through the club’s PITCH Project.
The Music Club of Greenville will have the instruments repaired and refurbished to playing condition. Band and orchestra instruments are accepted, including the flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone, tuba, French horn, violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, drums and percussion accessories. Cases, reeds, supplies, bows, music stands, music books and band books are also helpful.
Instruments can be dropped off at the Peace Center Box Office through Dec. 10. The box office is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and 90 minutes before performances.
“School of Rock” is based on the Jack Black film and follows Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher who turns a class of straight-A students into a rock band. “School of Rock” features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber and all the original songs from the movie.
