Live! at Montpelier: Clarence Ward III All Stars

Friday, March 9, 2018

Clarence H. Ward III began studying flute then saxophone at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School under the guidance of Baltimore musician and educator trombonist Charles Funn. Under Funn's tutelage, Clarence Ward III won best soloist awards at three jazz festivals while in high school and received a music scholarship to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. After a couple years of college, Clarence joined the U.S. Army as a full-time saxophonist. Since leaving the Army in 2001, he has been busy touring and recording with a number of great artists, including jazz artists Stanley Turrentine, Benny Golson, Nancy Wilson, Abbey Lincon, Gary Thomas, Gary Bartz, and Antonio Hart. Clarence currently leads a popular weekly jam session at The Sign of the Times in Baltimore. Come out and enjoy a mix of jazz standards and originals.
