Steinert High School Student to Perform on National School of Rock AllStars Tour, Raise Funds for Teen Suicide Prevention

Dean Svecz, a 16-year-old resident of Hamilton Township and a vocal student at School of Rock Princeton (SoR), will be a member of the School of Rock AllStars, which is a touring ensemble of some of the top teen musicians from School of Rock franchises from across the country. Svecz and his AllStars bandmates will perform at venues across four midwestern states from July 31 through August 5 to support mental health awareness as well as raise funds for the Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide (SPTS).

“The AllStars tour is going to be an amazing and once-in-a-lifetime experience,” says Svecz, who began as a student at SoR Princeton in 2020 and whose biggest inspirations are Elvis Presley and Freddie Mercury. “I’m looking forward to meeting new people, performing at incredible venues, and helping to support SPTS.”

Being a member of the AllStars represents the highest level of achievement for School of Rock music students. Fewer than 1 percent of 62,000 SoR students from across the country are selected to join this ensemble.

Svecz and his Midwest Team band will have an authentic touring experience, including traveling on a tour bus, doing publicity, and starring in nightly performances.

A portion of all ticket sales and donations that are collected during the School of Rock AllStars Tour will support SPTS, which is dedicated to reducing the stigma around discussing suicide and empowering teens, parents, and educators with the skills to help youths in crisis.
