The UVA Jazz Ensemble, under the direction of John D’earth, is partnering with Jazz4Justice, to bring the First Annual Jazz4Justice Concert to UVA. Jazz4Justice, founded by former Virginia State Bar President Ed Weiner, collaborates with university music programs and the local legal community to raise funds for Legal Aid and music scholarships. Since 2000, more than 40 annual Jazz4Justice concerts have been held on 9 Virginia college campuses and have raised more than $350,000. (www.jazz4justice.com)
