MONTCLAIR, NJ - School of Rock Montclair will present a series of tribute concerts throughout January featuring their Performance Program students.  Admission to all of the concerts is free, and the shows will be held at Just Jakes and the newly opened Old Mogul Theatre.

“Our incredibly talented Performance Program students range in age from 7 to 17, and they’ve been rehearsing their repertoires since September,” says School of Rock Montclair General Manager Kevin March.  “These concerts capture the essence of School of Rock’s unique performance-based music education philosophy, which is that we don’t teach our students music to put on shows, we put on shows to teach our students music.  Audiences can expect to enjoy amazing performances that will get their feet stomping, fists pumping, and butts shaking.”

School of Rock Montclair’s schedule of free Performance Program concerts is as follows:
