HIGHLAND PARK — The John Farnsworth Quintet will perform Sept. 25 as part of Art in the Park — the 2005 Highland Park Arts Festival.
The festival will be held 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. along Raritan Avenue, rain or shine.
John Farnsworth is a freelance musician in New York City performing on both the tenor saxophone and trombone.
He performs every Monday evening at Smoke, a jazz club in New York, with his quintet featuring a different horn soloist every week. The regulars in the rhythm section are his brother Joe Farnsworth on drums, Mike LeDonne or Harold Mabern on piano, and John Webber or Gerald Cannon on bass.
Farnsworth received his undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and his graduate degree from the University of Massachusetts. He previously worked in the big bands of Glenn Miller, Illinois Jacquet, Frank Foster, Artie Shaw, Archie Shepp and Charles Mingus.
Art in the Park features a juried fine-arts and crafts show with artists in various media. The free event will also feature an art expo with promotional booths of local arts-related businesses and organizations. There will also be children's activities such as face painting, working in clay, sand art and other interactive fun.
The event is sponsored by Main Street Highland Park, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and revitalization of Highland Park's downtown business district.
