ONLINE TICKET SALES FOR THIS EVENT HAVE ENDED, BUT TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED AT THE DOOR
The Nashville Jazz Workshop announces Jazzmania 2013, its annual fall jazz party and fundraiser. The event will again be held in Jamison Hall at The Factory in Franklin and will occur on Sunday, October 20, from 4:00 to 8:00 pm.
Jazzmania 2013 is the Jazz Party of the Year and will feature gourmet food from Sargent's Fine Catering, complementary wine and beer from Lipman Brothers, and music from some of the area's finest jazz artists: saxophonist Evan Cobb, vocalist Sandra Dudley, and our very special guest this year, world-renowned saxphonist Kirk Whalum.
A special feature of the the event is a live and silent auction, with unique and desirable items that include tickets to top events, special dinner packages, in-home concerts, artwork by the city's top artists, and much more. The signature feature of our silent auction is Small Works a collection of 5" x 7" other small canvases with paintings by some of the area's top artists, produced especially for this event. Guests will enjoy browsing the works and placing bids on their top picks in fun competition with other patrons - the ultimate proceeds going entirely to benefit the mission of the school.
The ticket price includes food from around the world and complimentary wine. Tickets are $100. They will go on sale on Sunday, Sept 1.
The Factory is located at 230 Franklin Road, Franklin, TN 37065.
