This year’s performance at HCC will feature the “James River Ramblers,” a seven-piece ensemble that performs jazz music in the New Orleans style tradition.
Co-sponsored by the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, this concert is free and is open to the public. Concessions will be available for purchase. Please note that no outside food is permitted on the amphitheater grounds.
