Bring your picnic baskets, blankets and lawn chairs to a relaxing evening of music at the Beyond Jazz concert, performed by members of the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival and hosted by the Warwick Historical Society (WHS) on Sunday, June 6, at 5 p.m. in Lewis Park.

Beyond Jazz is an improvisational “jazz” ensemble featuring Steve Rubin on drums and percussion, Rick Savage on trumpet, flugelhorn and percussion, Joe Vincent Tranchina on keyboards, Ed Littmas on guitar and effects, J. Brunka on electric and acoustic basses and effects, Ian Smit on guitar and effects, and Bob Rosen on saxophone. Each musician is an equal component with an interesting background, from composers to performers, music educators to recording engineers.

The group composes as it plays while injecting influences from jazz, classical, electronic, R & B, rock and other unlabeled musical influences. Each performance is unique and unscripted.

Tickets are on sale for $10 for WHS members, two for $18; or $12 per person, two for $20 for non-members.

All local and state guidelines and restrictions will be upheld with social distancing and proper PPE required.
