Glen Burnie area enjoys all that jazz

July 5, 2017 by  

The Baltimore County Recreation and Parks, along with The Friends of Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum Inc., will be continuing its 2017 Jazz Concert Series with two jazz ensembles this month.

The first group will be the Fruition Experience. This five-member group led by Aaron Hill will be presenting a repertoire that ranges from basic acoustic jazz to a combination of neo soul, electronic fusion hip-hop, and contemporary jazz.

At the end of the month Todd Marcus Jazz will be performing. Marcus plays mostly modern jazz, and the bass clarinet is his instrument of choice. He composes much of his repertoire, and his music is infused with Middle Eastern melodies and harmonics of his Egyptian-American heritage.

Glen Burnie fans of either of these groups may want to check with the musicians to see if they have any promotional products for purchase.

Everyone is encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnics. For those who would rather leave the picnic baskets at home, there will be food and drinks available.

General admission for these concerts will be $20. Proceeds will go to the museum’s historical, cultural, educational, and nature study programs.

These concerts will be from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm at the Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum, 300 Oella Avenue, Catonsville. The Fruition Experience performance will be July 15, and Todd Marcus Jazz will be on July 29.
