Jazz By the Sea: The Todd Marcus Quintet featuring Virginia MacDonald

July 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC-4

Bass clarinetist/composer Todd Marcus is one of the few jazz artists worldwide to focus their work primarily on the bass clarinet.
He has annually been voted a Rising Star in Downbeat Magazine’s Annual Critics Poll since 2013 and The New York Times writes, “Mr. Marcus is probably the most inventive bass clarinetist working in straight-ahead jazz today…[and] lives in Baltimore, where he is a guiding light on the city’s jazz scene who doubles as an activist and organizer.”

Canadian clarinetist educator, Virginia MacDonald has established herself as a rising star of her generation known for her lyrical and soulful clarinet playing, As a highly in-demand bandleader, sidewoman, and composer, Virginia keeps a regular performance schedule across Canada, the United States, and Europe. In 2020, she was the first-prize winner of the International Clarinetist Corona Competition; was a finalist for the Toronto Art Foundation’s 2024 Breakthrough Jazz Artist Award, and in 2023 headlined the International Clarinet Association’s 50th anniversary celebration at ClarinetFest in Denver, Colorado.
