The Duke Ellington Society, International Women in Jazz, Jazz Foundation of America, and Saint Peter’s Church – Jazz Ministry team up to put on a fundraiser for Clark Terry at 7:00 p.m. Monday, April 23 at Saint Peter’s Church, 619 Lexington Avenue at 54th Street in NYC.

More than 30 musicians will perform to raise money to help defray Terry’s medical expenses, and the trumpeter plans to appear at the event via Skype. Suggested donation is $25 at the door; checks should be written to Jazz Foundation of America with “Clark Terry account” in the memo line. Donations also can be sent to Jazz Foundation of America, 322 W. 48th Street, New York, NY 10036.
