Korg recently partnered with Zzounds to host their fourth Brew Music event at the Lagunitas tap room in Chicago, Illinois.

About 150 synth and beer enthusiasts attended the most recent Brew Music at Lagunitas, and all proceeds were donated to Foundations of Music, a not-for-profit organization that provides students with music education in Chicago.

“Our crew had an excellent time partnering with Korg and all the event attendees who came by for some fun at the Lagunitas brewery,” says Billy Pirie, brand marketing manager for Zzounds. “Grass roots events like these remind us all how important it is to connect with the music community, as they’re the ones who help propel the artistry and ideas forward that inspire us all to create.”

The event raised over $1000 to help support the local initiative to fund music programs in schools across the city. 

Foundations of Music offer classes that include general music or more specific practices like songwriting and production. Their honorary board includes members such as Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick, Buddy Guy and singer/songwriter Andrew Bird, who offers the Andrew Bird scholarship, an annual based audition scholarship that provides one year of private lessons.

Future Brew Music events are being scheduled for 2018.
