It's time for the 6th Annual Celebration of Music and Culture Charity Event, a multi-genre showcase that hosts a variety of professional musicians. It will be hosted at the TCC Leo Rich Theater on Sunday, September 30, 2012, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $40.
The event's proceeds will support the Tucson Musicians Museum Mentor Program for Youth. TMM's Mentor Program will give the guidance of a qualified professional musician to youth who otherwise wouldn't have been able to afford this service. TMM would like to develop sustained youth/mentor relationships and reach out to as many young people as possible. It will be the support of the community that helps to make this program successful for Tucson's youth.
The evening will include live performances by this year's inductees, free appetizers, a cash bar, a silent auction, and a ceremony for this year's inductees, including Brian, David and Howard Bromberg.
