The Village of Brockport’s final 2023 Winter Serenades music offering is The Freedom Trio at 3:00 on Sunday March 19.  The trio is composed of three stellar musicians – Peter Chwazik, jazz professor at Ithaca College and former bassist with Trey Anesthesia; Joe Parker, Eastman grad drummer and multi-instrumentalist; and Herb Smith, a Rochester treasure, on trumpet. Smith, an Eastman educated member of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, is well known as an outstanding and versatile classical and jazz musician and as a composer, conductor and educator.

According to Smith,  “to simply say that The Freedom Trio plays jazz is an understatement.” “Each musician brings a multifaceted portfolio of musical experiences, performances and styles to create the multi-genre, melodic grooving music that is The Freedom Trio.  You will hear the influences of Jazz, Funk, Rock, rhythms from India and Gospel coming together in an upbeat, uplifting package.”

Join fellow music lovers at 3:00 Sunday March 19 at Brockport’s St. Luke’s Episcopal Church for this special performance.  There is plenty of parking on the street and in a municipal lot behind the church.  St. Luke’s, with a pair of welcoming red front doors, is located at the corner of 14 State Street at Main Street.   It will be live-streamed on YouTube via the church’s web site,

Plan to stay after to chat with friends and the musicians at an informal reception upstairs in the Gathering Room.

The Winter and Summer Serenades series is run by volunteers and completely supported financially by generous local individuals and businesses; the Village of Brockport provides in-kind support.  It celebrates both the passion for hearing live music and the availability of fine musicians in the Rochester area.   It’s a casual event – no tickets are sold – and all are welcome to attend.

Additional information is available at 585-637-5300 Ext. 110, at or by downloading the Brockport Village app.
