Musicians Institute GIT Presents: Joe Diorio Benefit Concert/Fundraiser

United States
25 May 2007 — Musicians Institute Guitar Program (GIT) will be holding a special benefit concert and fund raising event for Jazz Legend and Guitar Virtuoso Joe Diorio on Thursday, May 31st at 7:30pm. The event will feature allstar performers Robben Ford, Jimmy Wyble, Ron Eschete, David Becker, Frank Potenza, Sid Jacobs, Phil Upchurch, Pat Kelley, Pat Hicks, & guests TBA in Musician Institute’s main concert hall (P100). Each performer will play with a house rhythm section as a musical homage to Joe, and as an expression of the indelible mark that Diorio has made as a legendary, world class Jazz performer, composer, educator and artist. Diorio was one of the founding instructors at GIT, and has been an inspiration and mentor to thousands of musicians world wide. The concert event will seek to raise funds on behalf of Diorio, providing him with financial aid for various expenses as a result of his serious health issues.

Despite its success in priming over 20,000 musicians, producers, engineers, vocalists and music industry professionals for careers in every contemporary genre of music— rock, funk, R&B, hip-hop, jazz, blues, and fusion, among others— Musicians Institute (MI) is still one of the best kept secrets in the music education field. Located in the heart of Hollywood , just blocks from the Capitol Records tower, MI has an incredible history of innovation dating back to its origins in 1977 as the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), which broke new ground as a performance-based contemporary music school taught by working professionals. Within a few years, GIT was joined by bass and drum programs to form Musicians Institute and the evolution has continued to this day with degree and certificate programs for career-minded guitarists, bassists, drummers, vocalists, keyboardists, recording engineers, independent producers, guitar makers, music business professionals and filmmakers.
