The Sandra Day O’Connor Institute established the scholarship fund to assist gifted students at the ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, according to a press release.

The benefit concert will take place at the Beus Center for Law and Society in downtown Phoenix.

“I am very proud to have a scholarship named for me at the law school that bears my name. I hope that it will be of help to a number of gifted students in the years ahead in hopes that they will advance the good work of the Law School,” said Justice Sandra Day O’Connor in a prepared statement.

Award-winning pianists Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi will be the featured artists. Residents of Milan and St. Louis, the husband and wife duo have performed throughout the world including the London Jazz Festival, Kobe, Japan Jazz Festival and the Edinburgh, Scotland Jazz & Blues Festival.

Renowned for performing on twin grand pianos, their four-hands piano talent, virtuosity and genius is dedicated to classic jazz, arrangements of songs from the swing era and draws from the ragtime and blues repertoire.

Tickets are $75 per person and includes a happy hour reception with a sumptuous cocktail buffet, wine, beer and soft drinks. A silent auction featuring signed books and photos will also be showcased.
