“Charlie Pollock & Friends” will bring down the South Orange Middle School Auditorium house at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, with a Valentine’s Day rock concert titled ‘LOVE LOVE LOVE’, raising money for the Achieve Foundation’s “Vanessa Pollock Music Initiative” (

The VP Music Initiative was founded to help repair/add instruments for the entire SOMSD, provide scholarships to in-need students for the rental of their band/orchestra instrument, and to provide private music instruction and instruments to in-need prodigious students.

The LOVE LOVE LOVE Concert is a concert of rock music that is sure to bring love into your life. (While not programmed for kids specifically, they are certainly welcome!)

Charlie Pollock has appeared in David Bowie’s musical Lazarus at New York Theater Workshop and is scheduled to be joined by Kevin Kern (WickedFinding Neverland), David Josefsberg (Honeymoon in Vegas), Becky Gulsvig (School of Rock, Beautiful), and his world-class band of players.

The concert will be FREE, with a suggested donation of $25.
