(MADISON, NJ) -- The New Jersey Jazz Society funds annual partial scholarship grants at five New Jersey universities with degree programs in jazz studies: Montclair State, New Jersey City University, Rowan, William Paterson, and Rutgers. This year’s scholarships totaled $7,900. On Sunday, May 19th, scholarship winners from four of those schools will perform as part of an All-Star College Ensemble at the NJJS monthly jazz social held at Shanghai Jazz in Madison.

Rowan University: Drummer Thomas Reilly and trumpeter Luis Ozoria. Reilly began his studies of jazz drumming, arranging, and composing with Bernards High School band director Fred Trumpy. Ozoria is from Galloway, NJ, attended Absegami High School, and currently lives in Absecon.  In addition to playing in the Rowan Jazz Band, Ozoria plays with the Philadelphia Wind Symphony.
