Pop icon Barry Manilow is donating a new Yamaha piano to launch an instrument drive for Jefferson County Public Schools, which is partnering with The Manilow Music Project, which provides musical instruments to high schools and middle schools as well as music scholarships at universities throughout North America. Anyone who donates a new or gently used musical instrument can get two free tickets to Manilow's show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre tomorrow, July 11.

"Jeffco is proud to partner with the Manilow Music Project to bring the sounds of music to our schools," said Jefferson County Public Schools superintendent Cindy Stevenson in a statement. "Music allows our students to express themselves through creativity and artistic expression, opening up a world of possibilities to them. In Jeffco, we want students to excel in the arts as well as academics. For those students and families who can't afford instrument rental fees, a small donation can make a big impact to a child."

Instruments can be dropped off at Rockley Music (8555 West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood), which is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., through tomorrow, July 11.

If Cindy Stevenson would quit spending taxpayer dollars on herself and her agenda to try to make friends- there would be plenty of money for the arts programs. Too bad it's never about kids and always about Cindy Stevenson- the worst superintendent in the history of public schools.
