Hou Gives A Flute Concert Tour - Freelance Whales - 12/4/10 - Brillobox - Pittsburgh

Houlihan's and VH1 are teaming up to promote "Save the Music Foundation". This weekend they will be making a stop in Pittsburgh at Saturday's Freelance Whales show at the Brillobox along with Friday's Girl Talk conert. The purpose of the stop is to araise awarness of the educational programs The Music Foundation supports. From the press release:

VH1 and Houlihan’s brand ambassadors will arrive in Pittsburgh to go backstage at two local concerts to obtain music artist’s signatures on an acoustic guitar valued at $1,000. Multiple signatures have already been added to the guitar in support of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation which is dedicated to restoring instrumental music education programs in America’s public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education.

During Houlihan’s lunch hour or happy hour, the signed guitar will arrive at the Houlihan’s restaurants throughout the market to be showcased in a plexi-glass case for guests to view. Patrons will have the chance to register to win free concerts for a year through Live Nation and also the decked out guitar by partaking in an online auction on www.charitybuzz.com. The guitar will be given to the highest bidder and the proceeds will benefit the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

The VH1 Save The Music Foundation is a nonprofit 501c3 organization dedicated to restoring instrumental music education programs in America’s public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child’s complete education. Since 1997, the VH1 Save The Music Foundation has successfully restored and sustained instrumental music programs in 1,600 public schools in more than 100 cities across the country, including Memphis, Houston, Chicago, New York, Denver, Baltimore and Milwaukee.

Be sure to stop by and support this important initiative to keep music alive in for our next generation.
