WAYNESBORO, Pa. - On Sunday, Aug. 29, summer heat comes with a promise of cool jazz. The Renfrew Institute Jazz Festival is a yearly, free, outdoor concert bringing as many as 1,000 people to the lawn behind Renfrew Museum, said organizer Andrew Sussman, who's been billing this year's concert as the Saxophone Summit. "There aren't very many venues left to see and hear live jazz," said Sussman, executive director of the Cumberland Valley School of Music. New York City alto-saxophone player Jim Snidero will return to Renfrew after performing at the jazz fest's inaugural concert 19 years ago. Baritone saxophonist Roger Rosenberg rounds out the lineup as a last-minute sub for the originally scheduled saxophonist Ronnie Cuber, who canceled due to a scheduling conflict.
