NOMMO Productions announces an additional screening of the documentary, “Pass It On Roger Humphries,” open to the general public, on April 12, beginning at 6 pm at the Kelly Strayhorn Theatre in East Liberty. Immediately after the screening there will be a Q&A.
“This film not only honors the life and times of a legendary Pittsburgh musician, but also meant to be a fundraising vehicle to benefitting four area non-profits serving the arts community,” said Billy Jackson of NOMMO Productions, who directed and produced the film. The beneficiaries are The Afro American Music Institute, The Jazz Workshop in Homewood, the Roger Humphries Scholarship Fund and The Lighthouse Arts Inc.
There are various levels of support available to continue raising the awareness and development of young talent and to ensure the tradition of high caliber musicianship is uninterrupted. They are: Seniors & students $10, general admission $20, VIP $50 and Patron $125. A portion of the contributions is tax deductible.
Patrons & VIP ticket holders will be invited to attend a private wine & cheese reception prior to the screening (at 5 p.m.) and have their name added to the roll of credits at the end of the film if their ticket is purchased by April 4, 2014.
