(SOMERVILLE, NJ) – July 18, 2022 –3 students from School of Rock Somerville have been selected to perform in the School of Rock AllStars music program tour in 2023. From July 21 through August 6, the tour will feature School of Rocks' most elite musicians, allowing audiences the opportunity to witness the next generation of musical stars as they perform at various stages across the country.
"This remarkable opportunity allows these students to showcase their unwavering dedication to music and natural talent on prestigious stages nationwide," said Dante Cimino, owner of School of Rock Somerville.
The AllStars represent the highest level of achievement for School of Rock students. Fewer than 1% are chosen each year from over 62,000 School of Rock Performance Program students. Students will have an authentic touring experience, including traveling on a tour bus, doing tour publicity, and starring in nightly performances at famous venues and festivals during a two-week tour.
"We are pleased to announce the return of our first nationwide tour since 2019, where the AllStars program will unite the School of Rock community and students from around the world," said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. "This exciting tour will feature our talented AllStar students performing with local schools in renowned venues across 31 cities, sharing their exceptional skills and creating unforgettable experiences for audiences."
The tour serves a dual purpose, aiming not only to provide our students with a musical and educational experience they’ll never forget, but also to raise awareness for Mental Health. We have partnered with the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (SPTS) to promote healthy practices on the road as a touring musician. A portion of the ticket sales and donations collected during the tour will support SPTS, an organization dedicated to reducing the stigma around discussing suicide and empowering teens, parents and educators with the skills needed to help youth in crisis.
