The Todd Marcus Quintet continues an east coast tour presenting music that will be recorded days later for Marcus’ new album On These Streets.  The performance features music written by Marcus to capture elements of his west Baltimore neighborhood where the death of community member Freddie Grey in April 2015 led to the city’s subsequent civil unrest.  As a musician who has also worked as a community activist in his neighborhood for 20 years (at his nonprofit Intersection of Change), Marcus’ new compositions seek to portray both the challenges and strengths of his community and find beauty in each.
