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.
