Hosted by the Mainstay, a music venue and cultural center in Rock Hall, with funding from the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust, an afternoon clinic will be followed by an evening concert by teachers and students.

ROCK HALL — Washington College and the Mainstay will present an afternoon clinic and an evening concert sponsored by the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust on Monday, April 13.

The clinic for Washington College students begins at 4 p.m. Under the leadership of Joe McCarthy — the Grammy-winning drummer (with Afro Bob Alliance), lecturer and instructor in jazz at Washington College — this year’s workshop will take place on the Mainstay stage. The public is welcome to attend as audience members.

After a dinner break, there will be a concert featuring the students and the instructors at 7:30 p.m., also at the Mainstay. Admission to both is free.

The afternoon workshop with the student ensemble will feature jazz luminaries such as Sue Matthews, vocals; Joe Holt, piano; Joe McCarthy, drums; Pete BarenBregge, reeds; Max Murray, bass; and Donato Soviero, guitar. 

The evening concert will feature the Washington College Jazz Ensemble, an ensemble of the professionals who were the workshop instructors and a combined group.

The Mainstay is a cultural and artistic center for the town of Rock Hall, a historic waterman’s town on the Chesapeake Bay. It has joined the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust to sponsor these jazz workshops for Washington College and Kent County High School students for several years.
