Earth, Wind & Fire plays Chastian July 24

When Earth, Wind & Fire visits Cadence Amphitheatre at Chastain Park on July 24, students from the Multi-Agency Alliance for Children will have the opportunity to spend some time with the band.

Philip Bailey’s Music is Unity Foundation is hosting a “Backstage Soundcheck” tour experience at 4 p.m. the day of the concert, and has partnered with the MAAC. Students (ages 17-21) will receive a behind-the-scenes tour of concert preparations, attend soundcheck and experience a Q&A session with Bailey and others on the tour.

The tour experience is designed to develop students’ interest in careers in the music industry; previous events have been held in Atlantic City and Phoenix, and another will take place at the band’s tour stop in Sacramento, Calif., this fall.
