Dedicated to the continuation and preservation of jazz, America’s indigenous art form, Jazz Alive was created to bring this great music to audiences and students who have little to no opportunity to hear and learn from the genre’s great practitioners. Jazz Alive is committed to presenting concerts, school assemblies, master classes, and school residencies in underserved communities that may be off jazz touring routes, lack jazz presenters, or have little funding for jazz events.
Jazz Alive presents their 2022 Summer Concert Series at the historic Waterfowl Building located at 40 South Harrison Street in Easton, Maryland. Continuing the club-like setting of the 2021 series, concertgoers can reserve seats at tables set throughout the hall that offer great views of the stage while enjoying a beverage and lite snacks from a candlelit table.
The 2022 Summer Concert Series kicks off on June 25, 2022 with one of the world’s finest jazz saxophone players, Larry McKenna. Larry is known for his gorgeous tenor saxophone sound, the beauty of his balladry, and his fluid, bebop-inspired improvisations. After six decades in his profession, his international reputation as both a masterful jazz improviser and educator is firmly established. Over the years, Larry has performed and recorded with many jazz stars including Woody Herman, Clark Terry, Buddy DeFranco, Barry Harris, Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, Jimmy Heath, Jon Faddis, Harry Allen, Terell Stafford, Eric Alexander, Bill Charlap, Warren Vaché, Kenny Barron, Randy Brecker, Wynton Marsalis, and Frank Sinatra.
The Waterfowl Building is at 40 South Harrison Street in Easton, Maryland. Tickets are $48 and available at jazz-alive.org or at the door the day of the event. Students attend free with a Student ID. A cash bar will be available. Proceeds from ticket and concession sales support Jazz Alive’s mission of providing educational support in developing future artists and preserving this great art form through school and community programs.
