WARWICK-Jazz sensation, the String Trio of New York (S3NY), kicks off their lecture/performance series entitled Jazz Connections - Sounds of the City at the Warwick Valley Community Center On Friday, Sept. 10, at 7:30 p.m. The performance, "Our Way - Jazz & Creativity," will feature the String Trio of New York's diverse compositions and repertoire coupled with a lecture and group discussion on the development and history of the S3NY. As jazz has always been a matter of musicians interpreting the soul of music, Our Way is bringing the 27 years of the S3NY's finest work to the audience in a way that is fresh and new, like the days of its inception. On Friday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m., the S3NY returns to the Warwick Valley Community Center with "Jazz through the Ages," a musical demonstration and discussion of the growth of jazz in the 20th century.
