A reception and jazz concert Saturday will highlight the debut of the new Dr. Thomas D. Pappert Center for Performance and Innovation at Duquesne University.

Renovation of a large hall and classroom area in the Mary Pappert School of Music has created a space for performance, recording and rehearsal.

The center will be used at first for student purposes but it is equipped with theatrical lighting, has a 16-foot video projection screen and seating for up to 150.

Edward Kocher, dean of the music school, says "creating a 'one-stop shop' like this on campus has been a lifelong dream for our performance and music technology folk."

The concert commemorating the event will feature guitarist Joe Negri, trumpeter Sean Jones, saxophonist Mike Tomaro and singer Maureen Budway in a program that benefits the Nicholas Jordanoff Trumpet Scholarship. Admission is $20. Reservations are required; call 412-396-6209.
