An AllStar from School of Rock Fort Myers gets their shot on the nationwide tour

The 10-day tour supports Mental Health Awareness and raises funds for Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide

By Staff | Jul 8, 2024

A student from School of Rock Fort Myers has been selected to perform in the School of Rock AllStars music program tour in 2024. From July 19 through July 28, the tour will feature School of Rocks’ most elite musicians, allowing audiences the opportunity to witness the next generation of musical stars as they perform at various stages across the country.

“This remarkable opportunity allows these students to showcase their unwavering dedication to music and natural talent on prestigious stages nationwide, and we are also very excited that Fort Myers was chosen to be the first stop on the Florida tour swing. Our own House Band will be sharing the stage with the AllStars on July 22 at the Nauti Parrot Oasis,” said Doug Harris, owner of School of Rock Fort Myers. “I’m also very proud to say that our Assistant General Manager, Brigid Harris, was chosen to be the Tour Coordinator for this tour.”

The AllStars represent the highest level of achievement for School of Rock students. Fewer than one percent are chosen each year from over 67,000 School of Rock students. Students will have an authentic touring experience, including traveling on a tour bus, doing tour publicity, and starring in nightly performances at famous venues and festivals during a two-week tour.

“This incredible opportunity is a testament to the hard work and talent of our students on a global level. We are thrilled to see them shine on some of the most prestigious stages,” said Stacey Ryan, COO of School of Rock. “Being selected as an AllStar is a significant achievement, and we couldn’t be more proud of our students for reaching this elite level. Their dedication to music is truly inspiring, and we are excited for them to experience the thrill of touring and performing nationwide, building lifelong friendships and memories along the way.”

The tour serves a dual purpose, aiming not only to provide our students with a musical and educational experience they’ll never forget, but also to raise awareness for Mental Health.

School of Rock has partnered with the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide to promote healthy practices on the road as a touring musician. The AllStar teams will be working to raise donations during their shows, which will support SPTS, an organization dedicated to reducing the stigma around discussing suicide and empowering teens, parents and educators with the skills needed to help youth in crisis.
