Join Bob Morgan for "DocFest" on 12/26/15 at Houston's Ensemble Theatre
Join Dr. Robert Morgan on Saturday, 12/26/15 at 6:30 PM for the 2nd Innaugural "DocFest", a reception/concert/jazz session celebrating the life and career of Dr. Robert Morgan, HSPVA Director of Jazz Studies, 1976-1999.
One year ago "DocFest" was established, an annual concert/scholarship benefit launched by two High School for Performing and Visual Art (HSPVA) ex-students of Houston Illini Board Member, and fellow Illinois alum Dr. Robert Morgan. Last year's inaugural event was successful beyond expectations, thanks to the incredible concert presented by prominent HSPVA alumnus Everette Harp ('79), and the substantial funds generated that evening for the Helen and Bob Morgan Jazz Scholarship at New York's New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, which is restricted to graduates of HSPVA.
