MADISON, NJ - The Madison Music Association (MMA) welcomes you to join us for a night of “Sweet Music” at our 2014 Dessert and Jazz Fundraiser on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 6:30 pm at Madison High School, 170 Ridgedale Avenue.  The event features jazz ensembles from Madison Junior School and Madison High School.

Dessert and Jazz begins at 6:30 pm with dessert and beverages held in the high school cafeteria. Student musicians from Madison High School will entertain guests as they enjoy delicious homemade desserts and beverages.

Helen Raymaker, President of the Madison Music Association says, “I love Dessert and Jazz because it brings together parent bakers, student servers, and talented performers to raise money for our arts programs.”

Following dessert, the festivities continue in the auditorium with a jazz concert featuring the Madison High School and Madison Junior School jazz ensembles. And for the first time, there will be a Student Art display as well, showcasing the MMA’s commitment to all of the arts in Madison.

Leo Sabatino, Madison Junior School Band Director adds, “Dessert and Jazz is a great night for the community and the students. It is the one time in the year both the Junior School and High School Jazz bands share a stage together while the Madison community gets to enjoy wonderful music, desserts, and beautiful art work.”

Stacy Snider, Supervisor of Visual and Performing Arts and World Languages remarks, “Dessert and Jazz offers a unique evening of entertainment: student soloists in a cabaret setting, jazz bands in the auditorium, a student art display and delicious desserts. And all the proceeds go towards a great cause!”

MMA fundraising efforts have benefited music, art and theater programs throughout the district.  Recent contributions by the MMA include microphones, acoustic shells and a marimba for the high school; percussion equipment for the junior school; and tablets and docking stations for the three elementary schools.  The elementary school grant will enable teachers to chart students’ progress throughout the year as well as provide accompaniment and music for their classes and lessons.

The MMA also recently provided a grant for Madison High School art students to take part in The Memory Project, a unique initiative in which art students create portraits for children and teens around the world who have been neglected, orphaned, or disadvantaged. In this case, children of Cambodia were the subjects of the portraits.

Tickets are $15 per person for the entire evening of entertainment. Reservations are strongly recommended as this event has a history of selling out.
