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.
If you cannot attend, we invite you to donate online and thank you most sincerely for your support.
