Ezra Weiss and Ben Fajen Interviewed on KBOO for the April 22 Fundraiser Concert

Dayna Stephens will be a special guest artist of the Ezra Weiss Big Band in a benefit concert and silent auction at New Expressive Works on Saturday, April 22nd!

This is a benefit concert for the Cathedral Park Jazz Festival! The Jazz Society of Oregon, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been running this festival the last three years and is working tirelessly to ensure the festival remains FREE to the public during the 37th year of it's existence. The festival receives no government support and has very high parks and license fees. We have raised a little more than one third of the funds for this festival, and are seeking new and different avenues for finding community support.
