Jazz in the Barn Fundraiser Benefits 2013 Monty Alexander Jazz Festival

At the recent “Jazz in the Barn” fundraiser for the Monty Alexander Jazz Festival, guests were treated to antique motorcycles, a micro-brewery and a jazz combo. Accomplished drummer, Isabelle DeLeon, who performed at last year’s Jazz Festival as part of the University of Maryland Jazz Ensemble, was accompanied at the fundraiser by keyboardist Tim Whalen and bassist Steve Synk. Each year, the fundraiser benefits the Jazz Festival, which is presented by Jazz on the Chesapeake, a program of Chesapeake Chamber Music. The 2013 Monty Alexander Jazz Festival will be held on Labor Day weekend from August 29 through September 1, 2013.
