Silvermine offers a jazzy way to celebrate

The Jim Clark Trio is set to bring its brand of jazz to the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan.

The special musical performance scheduled for Oct. 1 will benefit Art Partners, Silvermine’s Outreach Education Program.

The program, which is celebrating its 25th-anniversary year, annually brings curriculum-based, studio art programs to more than 1,000 underserved students in Fairfield County.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. with a gallery reception, to be followed by a 5 p.m. performance in the site’s Sara Victoria Hall Auditorium.

The Jim Clark Trio features Clark on tenor and soprano saxophones, Chris Coogan on piano and John Mobilio on upright bass. The trio will offer jazz favorites and American standards along with a few original compositions modeled in the style of the Great American Songbook.

Tickets, at $50, are available online or by calling 203-966-9700.
