MARGATE – Summer may be over and the crisp autumn air upon us, but it’s the perfect climate for being outside for the Margate Library’s Fall concert series.

Last Saturday, Sept. 18, in the park next to the library, the Howard Isaacson Quintet blew away the audience with their jazz version of familiar songs, jazz classics and original music. All five musicians are tops in their field, blending their instruments together to create a harmony of sound punctuated with the traditional solo segments from each of the musicians. From high-spirited to quieter mellow sounds, the band played a mix of music that permeated the air to the delight of the audience.

Much like the popular summer music series, the Margate Library is continuing the series with outside fall music concerts. A variety of musical styles are being offered which will keep each concert unique. Next up is “The Best of Broadway,” 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24.

For more information about the music series, contact the Margate Public Library, 8100 Atlantic Ave., at 609-822-4700 or
