In recent months, UNH affiliate professor of music and jazz legend Clark Terry has undergone many health challenges including amputation of both of his legs. The Jazz Foundation of America provides around-the-clock healthcare help and support.
To help defray these costs, some of Clark’s musical friends will join in a “Fundraising Concert for Clark” which will include a special Skype appearance by Clark and Gwen Terry.
