The 2019 SCNN Board of Directors, cordially invites you to join them at the 12th Annual International Breakfast...
JAZZ - The International Language
Friday, June 7th
8 AM @ CNU's
David Student Union Ballroom
with featured remarks by
Jazz Musician and Educator, Jae Sinnett
At the core of all Sister City programs are "People to People Exchanges" where we learn about different cultures. But what makes American culture unique? For a country formed from a "melting pot" of individuals from other nations, what can we claim as original to our culture? Maybe...JAZZ. Please join us to hear from local Jazz musician, educator, radio personality and "foodie" Jae Sinnett for his take on the International Language of Jazz.
Event registration is FREE; An appeal for your generous support of Sister Cities will be made. All proceeds benefit Sister Cities of Newport News, Inc. a 501(c)3 non-profit.
If you have questions or prefer to RSVP by phone or email, please call 757-926-1348 or send an email to: email@example.com
