A low-level tsunami advisory issued for the Southern California coastline by the National Weather Service will not affect a cancer fundraising concert planned for tonight aboard the USS Midway Museum on San Diego Bay. The inaugural “In Concert for Cancer,” set to take place from 6:30 pm to 10 pm tonight, will benefit research and patient services at Scripps Cancer Center.
According to the National Weather Service, significant widespread inundation is not expected for areas under a tsunami advisory. Rather, tsunami advisories are issued due to the threat of a potential tsunami which may produce strong currents or waves dangerous to those in or very near the water.
“In Concert for Cancer” will feature a lineup of six world-renowned jazz recording artists, who will perform under the stars on the aircraft carrier museum’s flight deck. Headlining artists include guitarist Richard Smith, keyboardist Gregg Karukas, and fellow saxophonists Jeff Kashiwa and Steve Cole. Special guest artists for the evening include saxophonist and vocalist Mindi Abair and saxophonist Kim Waters. Kashiwa, Cole and Waters will also perform as the traveling trio known as the “Sax Pack.”
General admission tickets to “In Concert for Cancer” are $50 per person and will be available tonight at the USS Midway Museum, located at 910 North Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101.
“In Concert for Cancer” is produced by Cjazz and presented by Scripps Health.
