    WARWICK-The String Trio returns to the Warwick Valley Community Center on Saturday, Oct. 9 with an afternoon performance of "Jump for Joy n Jazz for Families" at 2 p.m. and "The Art of Improvisation" at 7:30 p.m. These performances are a continuation of the Jazz Connections n Sounds of the City lecture/performance series. James Emery is a well-known name both in jazz world, a world in which he lives, sleeps, eats and breathes; as well as, in the community of Warwick where he is a resident. Somehow he always finds a way to find the time to be involved in the community. Emery plays guitar for the String Trio of New York, also known as "S3NY," Rob Thomas plays the violin and John Lindberg plays the bass. Together the trio makes magic happen and hopes to continue exposing new audiences to the beauty and magic of jazz. In the afternoon performance at 2 p.m. the trio will again share the rich jazz heritage in "Jump for Joy n Jazz for Families". Audience members will learn the basic building blocks of music (harmony, rhythm and melody) in a fun, interactive performance that will have them dancing in their seats. (James n help, need input). In the evening performance of "The Art of Improvisation" at 7:30 p.m., The String Trio will bring traditional approaches to improvising and its development up to the present day, illustrated through the performance of works by the Trio and others. Tickets for performance are $10 for adults and $5 for children. Pre-paid reservations are requested. All proceeds from the performance will go to the Warwick Valley Community Center located at 11 Hamilton Avenue, Warwick. For more information or to reserve tickets call the community center at 986-6422. Funds for this residency have been provided by Chamber Music America with support from the JPMorgan Chase Residency Regrant Program, a program of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, and the Chamber Music America Residency Endowment Fund. This project is made possible in part with funds from Orange County Tourism/Orange Arts and the county of Orange and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a State agency.
