PLG Arts Music Series
PLG Arts, in collaboration with Erv’s at 2122 Beekman Place, presents jazz groups in an informal setting that promotes interaction among performers and audience members.
PLG Arts Music Series presents exciting musical performances each month (except August, since we all need a break). Neighborhood musicians and audiences gather at a local venue for various kinds of music, certain to appeal to all musical tastes. Music becomes an active force for the neighborhood spirit of Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, embodied in the music program as performers and music fans get to know one another. Donations rather than a cost for entry allows attendance regardless of ability to pay and supports the musicians and PLG Arts.
