The historic venue The Mainstay is a cultural and artistic center for Rock Hall, a historic “waterman’s” town on the Upper Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The town’s healthy mix of people with a deep heritage on the Eastern Shore and newcomers who have fallen in love with the area give it a vitality, a hometown feeling and a sense of community that is hard to beat.

The Mainstay is a warm friendly place with great sound and sight lines. With only 120 seats, there’s not a bad one in the house. It’s a listening room that’s almost as comfortable as your living room. Beer, wine, soft drinks, home-baked goodies, and merchandise.

This Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra performance is part of an east coast tour presenting In The Valley, new music commissioned from Marcus to write for the band by Chamber Music America.  The concert will include a clinic earlier in the day.

This performance is supported in part by a grant from the Maryland State Arts Council and Chamber Music America.

In The Valley by Todd Marcus and the Todd Marcus Jazz Orchestra has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America’s 2016 New Jazz Works program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
