"JAZZ CONCERT" Norman Evans, a contemporary jazz recording artist who has received five Grammy nominations, will perform in his fourth annual charitable jazz concert. The concert will benefit The Journey Foundation, which was founded by Evans to help ensure local students are well fed, so that they come to school ready to learn. Currently the organization distributes food to families of students who attend Corkran Middle School at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, and as needed in emergencies. The average distribution is 10 to 12 grocery bags of food per family. Especially targeted are families who earn too much money to receive help from federal programs, but are still struggling to make ends meet. Evans hopes to expand the program to other schools in the future.
“CAFÉ PROMENADE SUNDAY JAZZ BRUNCH To really appreciate what Norman Evans is all about, you have to see his live performance. Norman is a one-man music machine, effortlessly toggling between the instruments of saxophone & keyboard, providing a satiable mix of R&B and smooth jazz interpretations.”
