Rock the Stream online concert series benefits local musicians, environmental nonprofits
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A local nonprofit is giving people the opportunity to listen to great local music while also giving back.
Rock the Green has started a concert series called Rock the Stream. Rock the Green works to create a sustainable ecosystem by bringing people together and encouraging a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.
The non-profit is known for its sustainable festivals and events. Since people can't be together right now, Rock the Green is bringing music and eco-education to people while they are at home through the Rock the Stream concert series.
"We're stoked to bring you a weekly, socially-distanced-yet-socially-still-kinda-together concert series to share great music with great friends, to raise funds for great local organizations and to create an environmentally sustainable world," the non-profit said when announcing the series.
The concerts will be streamed at 7 p.m. on Rock the Green's Facebook and YouTube.
Each week, they will feature a past performer from Rock the Green's Annual Earth Day Celebration and Sustainability Festival. Artists are paired with an environmental non-profit to raise money for both the musician and non-profit.
The money donated will be split between the two.
The first show featured Trapper Schoepp and Milwaukee Riverkeeper.
