Red Hot Chili Peppers raise a million for Silverlake Conservatory of Music

Last night (Wednesday, August 24), multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers performed a rare intimate show at L.A. LIVE’s Club Nokia which raised $1 million for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. 

The sold-out show featured a nearly two-hour performance by the band who will release their tenth studio album, I’m With You (Warner Bros. Records) on August 30.

This is the latest fundraiser for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music and all proceeds from the event will continue to fund the school’s operating costs, along with the pivotal scholarship program which is designed to offer music education to children who could not otherwise afford lessons.  Flea, the Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist, co-founded (with Keith Barry) the Silverlake Conservatory of Music in 2001; the band’s lead singer Anthony Kiedis sits on its board of directors

The Silverlake Conservatory is a non-profit organization created to fill a void in the cultural landscape of the community. It offers the people of the Silverlake area the opportunity to study music with exceptional teachers at a reasonable price. It grants scholarships to deserving children providing free lessons and instruments.   The faculty of the Conservatory is comprised of professional teachers and musicians each with many years of experience.
