FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) _ Singer Barry Manilow has donated a piano as part of a musical instrument drive that will benefit Fort Wayne Community Schools.
 
  The singer announced Friday that anyone who donates a new or gently used instrument at Memorial Coliseum will receive two free tickets to his April 18 concert in Fort Wayne.
 
  Instruments can be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
 
  Manilow says he's ``thrilled to be able to help bring the gift of music'' to the city's schoolchildren.
