Nefja Announces Season Opener Concert Supper
The Northeast Florida Jazz Association (NEFJA) invites you to return to the Big Band era with the music of Count Basie, Sarah Vaughn, and Arthur Prysock performed by the fabulous Doug Carn Big Band featuring Carn as Count Basie and popular vocalists Mary Louise and Laurence Walden as Sarah Vaughn and Arthur Prysock.
All proceeds will go to the Jeep McCoy Scholarship Fund and will be used to provide scholarships to talented music students enrolled in a jazz studies program at a Florida university or college. Previous scholarship winners have gone on to perform with noted jazz stars including Wynton Marsalis, James Moody, Kenny Barron, and others.
The Northeast Florida Jazz Association is dedicated to presenting the best live jazz music at affordable prices and perpetuating jazz, America's indigenous art form by presenting scholarships to the next generation of jazz musicians.
Come listen to some great jazz and support a worthy cause at the same time. Admission for the concert and supper is $45 for NEFJA members; $50 for non-members. Concert only tickets are available for $20. Seating is limited, so call 386-445-1329 today for tickets. (The concert will be from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. and the dinner will follow.)
