Maryland Rising Stars-Clarence Ward III, Irene Jalenti at Concord Point Headliners Stage
Clarence Ward III
Baltimore saxophonist and trumpeter Clarence Ward III, pours heart and complex emotion into the fiber of his sound. From the minute you hear the crisp, agile wail of his trumpet, or the playful sincerity of his sax you are frozen, caught in a snare of hope and honesty until he decides he has said his peace. Standing as a major influencer in the development of Baltimore’s present jazz sound, Ward’s lion heart positions him on the vanguard, reinforcing jazz music as a vital voice for these modern times.
Italian-born, Baltimore-based jazz vocalist Irene Jalenti has proven to be a dynamic, soulful, and passionate performer and composer who delves deeply into the meaning of each song and brings drama and conviction to her performances with her naturally deep tone and an impressively wide range.
