The University of Mary Washington Jazz Ensemble will play a benefit concert on Saturday, Nov. 8, followed by an informal jam session open to all musicians in the audience.

Net proceeds from the event, called Jazz 4 Justice©, will benefit the UMW Jazz Ensemble and Rappahannock Legal Services, an area nonprofit that provides civil legal assistance. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Dodd Auditorium on UMW’s main Fredericksburg campus.

General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. They can be purchased at the event, or in advance at the following locations:

Fredericksburg Visitor Center, 706 Caroline St.
Roberson’s Music, 1300 Jefferson Davis Hwy
Rappahannock Legal Services, 500 Lafayette Blvd.
Creative Music Academy, 7001 Harrison Rd.

Will­ call tickets can also be purchased online at Rappahannock Legal Services.

Money raised will help fund scholarships for UMW music students and legal services for low­ income area individuals and families.

Jazz 4 Justice© events involve partnerships between university ­based musical groups and legal­ assistance organizations. The Fredericksburg Area Bar Association and UMW are co­sponsoring the Fredericksburg event.

Companies interested in sponsoring the event may contact Paul Simpson, a partner with the Parrish, Houck & Snead law firm and president of the Fredericksburg Area Bar Association. Donations are tax­ deductible.
