The Brooklyn Heights community can’t say nothing good came out of the pandemic. How else would we have been treated to a free weekly concert from Peter Kendall Clark, performed from the ledge of the Mansion House on Hicks St.? According to the bio on his website, when the pandemic hit, Peter was in rehearsal to portray the Hungarian poet Miklós Radnóti in the NYC premiere of The Parting with the Chelsea Opera. Peter’s other canceled 2020 engagements included Fredrik in A Little Night Music at TriCities Opera and Mr. Mister in The Cradle Will Rock at Union Avenue Opera. For now, the Brownstone Baritone will be performing at a new venue on Montague St. starting tonight at 6:00 p.m.

I’m very excited to announce that #songsfromtheledge has a new time and venue beginning [this] evening: Wednesdays at 6:00 PM at 62 Montague Street. Thank you to my friends at the @brooklynheightsassociation for helping out with this relocation, as our crowds were getting to be too big for little ole Hicks Street. Coincidentally, my first apartment in New York was right across the street, and I also lived around the corner for a few years. It’s one of the most beautiful spots in Brooklyn, adjacent to the Promenade entrance. [This evening] should be beautiful with Finian’s Rainbow and Danny Boy on the list (for St. Patty’s) It feels like we are moving to the Schubert Theater!
