Friday, August 30th, 2024, 6:00pm, with food service by Crepes du Jour

The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation welcomes Alek Razdan and Ensemble bringing their unique style of cool jazz to our music festival’s final concert. Local Rockport tenor saxophonist Alek Razdan started his musical career at the age of 6. Not only is he the lead saxophonist with his own jazz ensemble, Razdan plays with the five-time Grammy-nominated group Roomful of Blues. He also performs with the American Symphony of Soul and the A-Train Orchestra. With a full schedule of concert performances, he has found the time to self-produce three albums.

In the spirit of giving back to the community each concert is partnered with a Cape Ann non-profit organization. The public is invited to make a free-will donation (So if you can, please bring cash/check.) This week's organization is Wellspring House.
