On July 7, 2016, Maine Jazz Camp lost one of its past Directors, Steve Grover. Steve was a great friend and supporter of MJC on a general level and a close friend to many of the MJC staff and faculty on a personal level. He was a man with wide-ranging interests, remarkable knowledge and a passion for music. He was able to talk about a variety of genres and was enthusiastic about it all without ever being judgmental. Yet it was his kindness and humanity that might have been the greatest gift of all. We will certainly miss him.

According to Steve’s wishes, he would like the sales of his cd’s to go towards the MJC scholarship fund to specifically support economically disadvantaged campers. Please find below a list of Steve’s CD’s that are $10 each. You may contact either Paul Lichter at 207-828-1310 or myself at christinecorrea@earthlink.net or 718-499-9051 if interested. All proceeds from these sales will go directly to the MJC Scholarship Fund. If you wish to make a donation in Steve’s name, please write a check to Maine Jazz Camp (put Steve’s name in the memo section) and mail to Van Brunt Station, P.O. Box 150-597, Brooklyn NY 11215.
