Brooklyn Music School (BMS) launched its first Beer and Beats music festival. The fest features free live music from students, faculty, and special guest artists to Brooklyn breweries every other Saturday from July to September. The participating breweries will donate the proceeds from every beer sold at the festival to raise money for the non-profit music school. Festival merch will also be available for sale, with all proceeds benefiting performing arts education at BMS. The school was founded in 1909 by a group of immigrants who believed that music was an essential part of life. Their mission is to enrich the Brooklyn community through high-quality and accessible performing arts education.
“Our goal for the Beer and Beats Festival is to engage and connect with our community on a larger scale, while also generating revenue and audiences for local businesses and local artists. The event also doubles as a fundraiser for BMS!” said Emery Major, BMS Marketing Associate and Beer & Beats Festival Co-Producer.
Beer and Beats will arrive at North Brooklyn on August 20, 3 p.m.–6 p.m. at 18th Ward (300 Richardson Street), and the festival will hold its finale performance September 17, 1 p.m.–5 p.m. at Brooklyn Brewery (79 N 11th Street). To RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/brooklyn-music-school-8553123676
