Every year suicide claims more lives than war, murder, and natural disasters combined. (afsp.org) The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention funds scientific research, offers educational programs for professionals, educates the public about mood disorders and suicide prevention, promotes policies and legislation that impact suicide and prevention, and provides programs and resources for survivors of suicide loss and people at risk. Once a year, thousands join together in Out of the Darkness overnight walks to fight suicide. The connections people make last a lifetime, and the funds raised save lives. Pam Muscente has been walking since 2014, the year her son, Michael, died. All proceeds of this concert go to Pam's Out of the Darkness fund-raising goal of $4000.
For this program, jazz pianist Phil Orr interprets show hits, pop standards, and familiar jazz songs by Bernstein, Ellington, Evans, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, Rodgers, Waller, Warren, and “audience request.” Besides leading his trio, Phil Orr & More, he curates and hosts the weekly Jazz On Broad series in Hopewell, NJ, partners with Seward Johnson and Adam Weitz for Sing Along With Sculpture at Grounds For Sculpture, accompanies Jason Kravits' improv cabaret show, Off the Top!, and performs in the area with Steve Hiltner, Trineice Robinson-Martin, and Doris Spears.
All Saints Episcopal Church is located at 16 All Saints Lane, Princeton, NJ 08540
