NJJS in collaboration with Shanghai Jazz resumes its popular series of monthly Sunday afternoon socials. You don't have to be a member to attend — but admission is free if you are. Come for the music programs, social hour, and fine food and drink.
Directions to Shanghai Jazz can be found at the Shanghai Jazz website.
NJJS members admitted free; $10 guest admission, which can be applied to a new membership. Drinks and food will be available throughout the afternoon. Please note that Shanghai Jazz requires a $10 food-beverage minimum for all NJJS-sponsored events; there are no exceptions.
The program takes place at 3:30pm unless otherwise noted. These socials are proving to be both entertaining and educational. Please take advantage of this terrific benefit of NJJS membership.
Doors open 3:00pm - show starts 3:30pm. This will be a tremendous show. Recipients of scholarships who will be performing for us are:
