TIME: 7:30 p.m.
PLACE: Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall and Arts Center
The Alexandria Law Foundation and NOVA’s Alexandria Campus Music Department present the 5th annual Jazz4Justice©Concert. The suggested donation of $15 for adults and $5 for children is tax deductible.
It’s a great concert for a great cause! Proceeds benefit Alexandria programs including those that help abused children, the elderly and provide legal aid to low-income residents. Each year Jazz4Justice presents scholarship awards to deserving NOVA students thanks to generous donations from previous Jazz4Justice concerts. The event is family-friendly and all are welcome to attend.
The band is directed by John “The Smoker” Kocur, music faculty member at the Alexandria Campus, and a saxophonist and composer who’s been a fixture on the Washington, DC, jazz scene for 10 years. The NOVA Nighthawks Jazz Ensemble will perform a program of music from Washington, DC, including works by Duke Ellington, Buddy Rich, Chuck Brown, Ramsey Lewis, and Marvin Gaye. The T.C. Williams High School Jazz Band directed by Doug Rogers will also perform. You can join in on the fun too! A jam session with NOVA music students will start at 6:00 p.m. before the official concert begins. All musicians are welcome. A cash bar will be available and a raffle for fabulous prizes donated by local merchants.
You can buy tickets (or make a donation if you cannot come) through our website – J4JAlexandria.wordpress.com – or through the Alexandria Bar Association at 703-548-1105 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please support our community by attending an evening of great music!
