Pitch Perfect Project Jazz Ensemble at Baldwin Public Library

On Sunday, May 22, the Pitch Perfect Project jazz ensemble kicks off the return of a long-held Sunday entertainment staple at Baldwin Public Library. Sunday’s first in-person concert since the pandemic, which starts at 2 pm in BPL’s Community Room, is free. However, those attending must have a ticket in hand prior to the show. Tickets can be picked up at the library’s Adult Reference Desk or called-in to be put on hold for pick up anytime from now until minutes before show time that day. The concert is a welcome gift for those who have missed Sunday afternoons being entertained by performers from all genres of music. The Pitch Perfect Project ensemble, in its performance, seeks to pay homage to the great American art form of jazz. “Long after other musical genres have come and gone, jazz remains relevant as it continues to shape the character and hearts of those who listen,” commented a band member. The core septet that’s made up of seasoned musicians include Grammy Award-winning trombonist Dr. Robert Stringer and others who have worked with such legendary artists as Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, Herbie Hancock, Kenny G, and Marcus Miller, as well as greats Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Natalie Cole, and Shirley Caesar. “Jazz lovers who come to this live event are in for quite a treat,” said a patron who checked out some of the group’s performances on YouTube and Facebook. Baldwin Public Library Director Elizabeth Olesh is excited about the return of the Sunday entertainment series, too. “Music is integral to the Baldwin community. We are thrilled to bring concerts back for all to enjoy,” she said.
