The Mayor’s Charity Fund is sponsoring a free jazz concert in the center of town this Saturday, September 21, and it will feature a Verona musician.
Matt Tischio, a 2011 graduate of Verona high school who is currently a jazz major at William Paterson University, will perform with his quintet, Outplay.
The music starts at 6 p.m., and you should plan on bringing a chair or a blanket, just as you do for the summer concerts. And plan on staying in town for dinner after: Organizers will be handing out a flyer with the names of restaurants in town that have agreed to take 20% off dinner checks that evening for concert goers.
The concert is something of a departure for the Mayor’s Charity Fund. It has previously used the proceeds of its bi-annual fundraiser to support children’s charities and activities in Verona.
