Spend Sunday afternoon listening to the community piano

The Jamestown Community Piano association will hold a free recital by Linda Pezzulo at St. Matthews Episcopal Church on Sunday, Sept. 7, at 4 p.m.

Among the many memorable achievements of the Jamestown community was the purchase of a beautiful seven-foot Schimmel grand piano in November 2001.

In 1999, a small group of music lovers in Jamestown decided it was time to have a piano available for the many varied programs presented during the year. Two years later, over 225 contributors had donated approximately $28,000.

The Schimmel was purchased and is now owned by the people of Jamestown. Thanks to St. Matthew's Episcopal Church, the town has a space with fine acoustics to house the piano.

The Jamestown Community Piano Association is an organization whose purpose is to maintain the piano for use by the community and to present concerts in Jamestown which feature the piano. This group hopes to increase the use and appreciation of this community resource. As one of the founders wrote after the inaugural concert on the Schimmel, "to be able to enjoy the beauty and peace that music can bring is a blessing to be thankful for."
