For the fifth straight year, George Mason University’s School of Music and Prince William County Bar Foundation, Inc. partnered to present their annual fundraising Jazz4Justice© concert on November 11, 2016 at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. This concert is a spectacular annual music event which raises funds to support vital community and legal services in Prince William County and music scholarships for students at George Mason University. The 2016 Jazz4Justice© concerts featured a program titled “A Tribute to The Greatest Generation,” with the Mason Jazz Ensemble. The Ensemble was conducted by Jim Carroll, Director of Jazz Studies at George Mason University, who recognized and honored the veterans worldwide and in the audience. As always, Jim Carroll and his Mason Jazz Ensemble provided inspiration to the audience and perspective on the history of the music performed. Adding to the recognitions of veterans theme, student vocalists under the direction of Dr. Darden Purcell, Director of Jazz Studies/Jazz Voice at George Mason University performed songs from World War II while dressed in costume similar to period uniforms of all branches of the service. Following the performances a jam session was held in the Didlake Grand Foyer of the Hylton Center.
Jazz4Justice was conceptualized and initiated by Ed Weiner, immediate past Virginia State Bar President and practicing attorney in Fairfax, Virginia. Through years of tireless effort, Ed has been successful in growing this cause to include other venues throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia including, Christopher Newport University, Northern Virginia Community College, Shenandoah University, Virginia Commonwealth University, and elsewhere throughout the country.
The Prince William County Bar Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization that was established to fund law-related education and service projects in the 31st Judicial Circuit. In addition to other programs that provide legal education to the community and lawyers, the Foundation provides funding and administration for the scholarships and awards that are given annually in the community to young people who have managed to overcome obstacles to put their lives on a positive path. The Foundation raises funds through generous contributions from the Prince William County legal community and other non-profit, government, corporate and private donors.
