An Evening with Quincy Jones & Friends
Event Date: Thursday, May 23, 2013 at 8:00 pm
Facility: Fox Theatre
One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society began the fight of a lifetime – the fight against cancer. To celebrate the progress made in the past century, the American Cancer Society has chosen musical legend, producer and composer, Quincy Jones to command an unforgettable evening of artists including James Ingram, Patti Austin, Siedah Garrett, Nikki Yanofsky and Alfredo Rodriguez, Allen Stone, and Pentatonix. One of the most influential jazz musicians of the 20th century, Jones' creative magic has spanned more than six decades. He now brings that magic to the stage with the American Cancer Society to help celebrate 100 years of progress in the fight against cancer and usher the organization into the most ambitious undertaking yet – finishing the fight!
Quincy Jones is a legend and a living icon, and my friend, mentor and brother. Q is the co-chair of Operation HOPE's 5 MILLION KIDS initiative, and we have recently launched Banking on Our Future, Quincy Jones Edition, a cutting edge financial literacy curriculum, in his honor. I am also honored to serve on the advisory board for the Quincy Jones Musiq Consortium.
Please support Q and the American Cancer Society, as he and they support so many others.
