The Evening of Jazz is an annual tradition at Newark Academy, showcasing our school’s award-winning jazz ensembles. This year our student musicians will share the stage with three featured musicians: tenor saxophonist Tim Ries, a member of The Rolling Stones touring band; trombonist Andre Hayward, formerly with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra and winner of the 2003 Thelonious Monk Competition; and vocalist Monica Lynk Anderson. The event will be held on Friday, April 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Rose Auditorium. Tickets are $10 each. To purchase tickets or make a donation, contact the Newark Academy bookstore at 973-992-700 x428, or via email at email@example.com. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, and to the Ana Grace Fund. “Ana Grace Marquez-Greene was one of the children killed in the Sandy Hook shootings. Her parents, Jimmy and Nelba are dear friends of mine that go back to my college years,” said Julius Tolentino, director of the Newark Academy Jazz program. “Our contributions as a school and a jazz community will continue to support the families of Newtown as they work to support each other and in their efforts to prevent the causes of gun violence. It is fitting to honor Ana's memory with music, as she was musically gifted. In our efforts to raise funds for this worthy cause, we hope you can join us on April 11 for this special evening of music.” Jimmy Greene on CBS News Jimmy Greene lost his six-year-old daughter Ana in the Sandy Hook school shootings. He writes and narrates a letter to himself about his loss and ability to overcome his grief.
