Cassandra Wilson Sings at MOMA

Those of you with a lot of disposable cash and charitable inclinations should probably consider disposing of some of that cash and indulging those inclinations at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) on Oct. 3. On that date, the Friends of Education, a committee of MOMA, will host Jazz Interlude 2001, a black-tie gala featuring Cassandra Wilson (pictured left). The event will also serve as a tribute to pianist/producer George Wein on the occasion of his 76th birthday.

Tickets start at $500 and top out at $1000, but the money will go to a good cause: the Friends of Education Fund, which helps African-Americans gain a stronger presence at MOMA by assisting in the acquisition of art by African-Americans and funding programs designed to bring African-American artists to MOMA for discussions on artistic issues of the day.

For more information, call MOMA’s Department of Special Programming and Events at (212) 708-9680.
