Foreigner to perform with Dallastown Area High School choir Oct. 16

October 06, 2010

As part of the band Foreigner's partnership with the VH-1 Save The Music Foundation, they will host the choir of Dallastown Area High School, Dallastown, Pa., during a performance of their 1984 hit "I Want to Know What Love Is" at the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) at Penn State York at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16.

Foreigner has partnered with the VH-1 Save the Music Foundation to support their mission of restoring instrumental music education in America's public schools, and raising awareness about the importance of music as part of each child's complete education.

"As far as I'm concerned, music is not only the most powerful form of communication between the peoples of the world, it provides a gateway that opens up a fantastic new dimension of feeling and creative and anything we can do to provide our young ones with the tools to express themselves through music, is our goal in this partnership," said Mick Jones, Foreigner guitarist.

As part of the partnership, Foreigner is donating $1,000 to the Dallastown Area High School choir to use towards its music program.

The latest Foreigner CD, "Can't Slow Down," will be made available for purchase prior to the performance. For $20, the buyer receives Foreigner's new three-disc set along with a ticket that provides a chance to win an autographed Foreigner guitar at a raffle at the end of the show. Proceeds from the sale of the CD's will go to the VH1 Save the Music program.

Foreigner also has been involved with other charities including the American Red Cross and the Shriner's Children's Hospitals, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for these worthy causes.
