In addition, a group of students from VH1 Save The Music grant recipient schools across the country will play together for the first time as an all-student orchestra, demonstrating the impact of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation.

The students are drawn from grant recipient schools from across the States, demonstrating the impact of the foundation. Other performers include Jon Bon Jovi and John Mayer.
