The Newport News Bar Association partners with Christopher Newport University (CNU) annually to put on a concert by the Jazz Ensemble at CNU. The funds raised by this concert benefit both the CNU music program and the Legal Aid Society of the Eastern District of Virginia.
A lot of work goes into putting on the concert, from designing the flyers to finding sponsors to selling the tickets. A social is also planned to kick off ticket sales. The night of the concert, a social is held prior to the concert. The talent of the students is incredible and all efforts from Committee members to make the concert a success is well worth it!
