Guerra's Coffee Co. in Sunnyside will host "Keep the Music Alive" all day long on Sunday, Feb. 6.
The special musical event from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. will be presented by Alejandro Isiordia and Jose N. Sanchez as their Sunnyside High School senior project. Each hour a different musician will perform.
"Keep The Music Alive" will feature teen musicians from the Lower Yakima Valley playing various genres of music: mariachi, acoustic rock, alternative rock and more.
The Sunnyside coffee shop employees will also be donating all tips and $1 for every drink sold that day.
"Keep The Music Alive" is intended to bring awareness to the community that the local music and art programs lack adequate funding. The goal is to raise $1,000. The money raised will aid the Sunnyside High School music program to purchase equipment, such as guitar strings, drums and uniforms.
The two high school seniors presenting the day-long extravaganza say their main goal is to reinforce the importance of music education in school and how it plays a very important part of the development in a student's education.
