Music educator Jason DeCristofaro has planned a dozen benefit concerts to support various nonprofits. The next event takes place at The BLOCK off Biltmore on Sunday, Feb. 26, and features the Richard Shulman Quartet and Dan Keller Quartet.

Jason DeCristofaro would like to see the community college’s music department receive acclaim similar to what the rest of A-B Tech has enjoyed.
