January 1, 2017 3:00PM Resolution: A Piano Benefit for Jazz Bridge
It’s an occasion to dress up, overeat, make noise, get plastered and spend big $$$$ for the privilege. Even with the attendant hangover, this can be fun.
We offer an alternative. Pocket that December 31st splurge for one more day and share it with resolution: a piano benefit for Jazz Bridge—3pm, January 1, 2017.
Our celebration advances the good work of Jazz Bridge—a non-profit providing health, housing and social support to area jazz musicians and their families. The jazz musician courageously creates and expresses joy without the safety net of steady income and benefits. This is our way of saying thanks and embracing the new year with joyous, solemn, aspirational, inspirational, and just plain beautiful music.
From Selection 2.pngTwelve of our area’s greatest jazz pianists will take turns ringing in the new year on our gorgeous Steinway B. Food and drink will be served. A fire will roar in the wood stove. Low-pressure mingling will occur. Join us for something life-affirming and uplifting.
A $150 donation to Jazz Bridge in the name of @exuberance guarantees a place at the party.* Please click here to do so. Donation is tax-deductible in 2016. If you cannot attend, your donation(s) will sponsor attendance by a young music student** and provide them a chance to rub elbows with their artistic “elders.”
@exuberance is a special space for invitation-only jazz salons and other events. Located in a beautifully-converted South Kensington warehouse, it showcases musicians and their work, providing great acoustics and a rare chance to enjoy music- heard-right in an ideal, intimate setting.

Please share this invitation with 3 or 4 of your friends who love jazz and can support this great cause. If your friends also share with 3 or 4 of their friends, the pyramid effect can create a fitting audience for this extraordinary event and provide much needed support for our community.
* suggested donation minimum: $ 150 per person, although we'll gratefully accept more!
**students will be selected by their teachers from the Clef Club Jazz Ambassador Ensemble Program & Camden Creative Arts Jazz Band.
