Live Music Series Returns to New Rochelle Public Library

NEW ROCHELLE, NY – The New Rochelle Public Library will once again host free live concerts starting Sunday.

Jazz musician Chip Shelton and his Flute Party Band will take the stage on September 26 at 3 p.m. This will be the first live music show at the library since the very start of the pandemic.

The performance will be hosted by jazz radio personality Keanna Faircloth.

Don’t be fooled by the woodwind-led ensemble, as it won’t be a stilted chamber music affair. The energetic concert will truly be a flute party. The group presents itself as an intersection of multigenerational and pan-ethnic influences “where art and pleasure are one”. Spectators are encouraged to get up and dance or, if they prefer, just bring a chair and relax.

The show will take place at Ruby Dee Park on Library Green. In the event of rain, the show will be moved to the Ossie Davis Theater inside the library. Masks are recommended outside and will be mandatory inside the library.

This free performance was made possible by the Friends of the New Rochelle Public Library.
