Kris Allen made a guest appearance at VH1’s Save the Music concert in Indianapolis, IN at Conseco Fieldhouse yesterday night. Kris had along Cale Mills and they played a few songs for the crowd (“Man in the Mirror”, “Alright With Me” , “Live Like You’re Dying”). The festivities were celebrating the successes of a 10-year partnership between Bright House Networks, VH1 Save the Music Foundation and Indianapolis Public Schools. More than 1,100 elementary student musicians from Indianapolis Public Schools also performed!  More details here.

In 2000, Bright House Networks and VH1 Save The Music Foundation joined forces to combat disappearing instrumental music education programs inside IPS. Since, Bright House Networks and VH1 Save The Music Foundation have provided 42 IPS schools with $1.13 million worth of new musical instruments to restart IPS’s instrumental music program; including band and strings programs, for elementary school students.
