School of Rock Tribute To Michael Jackson

Will Benefit Music & More Booster Club Scholarship Program

Concert will include performances of the King of Pop’s greatest hits

Young musicians from the School of Rock Montclair will present a Tribute To Michael Jackson’s Dangerous Tour this weekend at James Caldwell High School. All ticket sale proceeds will benefit the Music & More Booster Club’s scholarship program for graduating seniors.

“We’re thrilled that School of Rock will be putting on these concerts for Music & More,” says Ellen Kreil, Director of the Music & More Booster Club. “The audiences will enjoy incredible music and exciting shows, and we’ll be able to provide seniors with scholarships to help them further their music education after they graduate from JCHS.”

The musicians will recreate Michael Jackson’s 1992 Dangerous World Tour, which was Jackson’s second international concert tour. At the time, it was the most extensive and highest grossing tour that any musical artist had ever done. Songs will include favorites from Jackson’s multimillion-selling solo albums “Off The Wall”, “Thriller”, “Bad”, and “Dangerous”, as well as such Jackson Five #1 hits as “I Want You Back” and “I’ll Be There”.

Over thirty School of Rock students, ages 7 to 17, will be featured in the shows. The young musicians are part of School of Rock’s Performance Program, and have been rehearsing for four hours per week since September ’11.

School of Rock’s Tribute To Michael Jackson's Dangerous Tour will be performed at James Caldwell High School Center of Performing Arts on Westville Avenue in West Caldwell on Saturday, January 28 at 7:00PM and Sunday, January 29 at 3:00PM. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. For more information, visit Montclair.schoolofrock.com and click on Events or call School of Rock Montclair at 973.337.5296.
