The Institute at Renfrew’s 29th annual jazz festival spotlights stellar performing artists that light up the outdoor stage with hot summer jazz. An informal question and answer period follows the show. Free and open to the public. In order to ensure the safety of attendees, band members and our staff, safety protocols will be implemented in accordance with the Green Phase of Pennsylvania’s reopening plan, and that of the venue, Renfrew Museum and Park. Appropriate distancing (6 feet) is required between household/family groups. Mask use is required when appropriate distancing is not possible.
On the lawn behind the Renfrew Museum house. In case of rain, the concert will be privately recorded and filmed for later viewing. This year’s concert features an all-star quintet with Eric Alexander (tenor sax), Jeremy Pelt (trumpet), Pat Bianchi (organ), Paul Bollenback (guitar), and Byron Landham (drums).
“Each of these artists is an internationally renowned jazz musician,” said event organizer, Andrew Sussman. “This concert is an opportunity to hear these stellar jazz artists for free in beautiful Renfrew Park!”
