Arts Briefing



The New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark plans to announce a $10 million gift from the Prudential Foundation today. Some of the gift is for the center's endowment, given as part of Prudential Financial's 125th anniversary celebration, and some supports the center's Early Learning Through the Arts program and other purposes. Through the performing arts, the program teaches basic academic and life skills to 3- to 5-year-olds. . . . The acclaimed teenage singer Hayley Westenra, whose CD "Pure" has been an international hit, will give her first United States solo performance at 7:30 tonight at Joe's Pub in the East Village.
