Whit Sidener Jazz Studio Complex Fund
Net proceeds from this concert will benefit the Frost School of Music Whit Sidener Jazz Studio Complex Fund, to name a suite of jazz teaching studios in the new Patricia Louise Frost Music Studios, now under construction. An anonymous pledge for $10,000 toward the new fund was recently received, and this concert helps our campaign move forward.

Individuals who contribute $100 ($20 non-deductible) or more to the fund by March 1 will receive free seating in a special dean’s guest section at the March 7 concert. Those who contribute $1,000 ($30 non-deductible) or more will also receive an invitation to a private pre-concert reception. Contact Lynne Gibson in the Frost Development office to make a charitable gift: (305) 284-2238 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
