This year's Ron Waters Scholarship Party & Jam Session will be held Wednesday evening, December 27th at Appalachian Brewery Co. in Harrisburg PA - doors open at 6:30pm - music from 7-10pm
This event is a fund raiser for the Ron Waters Scholarship Program which provides funds for students heading to college and also underwrites scholarships to the annual Central PA Jazz Camp.
The current CPFJ Youth Band will perform and there will be a jam session all evening featuring many of the area's jazz musicians, special guests, and many former Youth Band members will sit in.
In 2015, the Central PA Friends of Jazz hosted a tribute to Ron Waters, jazz trumpeter, composer, arranger, and the director of our CPFJ Youth Band for over 30 years. We highlighted Ron's dedication to the preservation of jazz through education of our young musicians and his long career as one of this area's outstanding musicians. In Ron's honor, CPFJ named a new educational grant - The Ron Waters Jazz Scholarship - that will be given annually to deserving area students.
We will have details available that night on how you can contribute to this scholarship fund and be a part of this legacy.
Add jazz to your holiday plans and join the Central PA Friends of Jazz for this very special evening.
