Renfrew Jazz Festival marks 25th year as ‘an ever-shifting collage’ (via Herald-Mail Media)

Waynesboro’s Renfrew Institute marked its 25th annual Jazz Festival the way it always has — by bringing together musicians for the first time, handing them some sheet music and experimenting to hear what happens.

“It’s going to be an ever-shifting collage,” said Paul Bollenback, who has played guitar at all but three of the festivals.

Bollenback partnered this year with vocalist Karrin Allyson, saxophonist Eric Alexander, bass player Ed Howard and drummer Jerome Jennings. They performed together for the first time Sunday.

Organizer Andrew Sussman likes to put together new ensembles for the free festival at Renfrew Park.
