Helium Presents: The Paul Green Rock Academy

An evening of classic rock, novelty hits, and LIVE BAND KARAOKE w/the best young musicians in the country, from School of Rock founder Paul Green.

The Paul Green Rock Academy (PGRA) is an advanced touring ensemble of young musicians between the ages of 10 and 18 who have been selected for their musical prowess, showmanship, love of performing, and ability to share the stage with professional musicians as they tour the world. This summer, the students of PGRA are touring with Jon Anderson (the voice of YES) as his backing band performing Yes songs and other classics. Recent and current participants of Paul Green Rock Academy have played alongside such musical luminaries as Donald Fagan (Steely Dan), Scott Ian (Anthrax), John Sebastian (The Lovin’ Spoonful), Fred Armisen (SNL, Portlandia), Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) and they have headlined festivals including Zappanale, the international celebration of the music of Frank Zappa.

Paul Green is the founder of the international music school chain School of Rock, however PGRA is the school of his dreams...a small audition only school for only the most dedicated students, with branches in Philadelphia and Southwestern Connecticut.
