North Atlanta High School music programs director Adam Brooks will be honored with the Manilow Music Project Award at music legend Barry Manilow's Jan. 19 concert at Atlanta's State Farm Arena.
The prize is $5,000 in cash and $5,000 “Manilow bucks” for the NAHS music program. The Manilow Music Project has given away over $10 million worth of funds and music instrument donations.
Brooks, 42, said he plans to buy a new speaker system for the band room and a keyboard for the jazz band, which performs seven to 10 times a year.
- “I’m very fortunate to have such a great community to serve. From the kids, parents and administration and colleagues, this amazing place to work,” Brooks said.
