Joy of Music School hosts “The Pick and Grin 2012”

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Local non-profit the Joy of Music School hosted an event called “The Pick and Grin 2012” to raise money for musical instruments and lessons for disadvantaged and at-risk youth in the Knoxville area.

The event included performances by local artists and students, as well as comedy routines and a roast of local attorney Stephen A. Burroughs.

While money is needed, the school’s executive director needs volunteers, too.

“We’ve got 80 kids on the waiting list,” said Executive Director Francis Graffeo. “We provide the music, we have the school. We need teachers.”
