About Hillside Jazz (Present Tense)

Offering the sound of tomorrow through some of the most vital voices of today in a free outdoor summer concert series on the beautiful Walker hillside.

Outdoor Performance and Event Guidelines

There will be two accessible seating spaces on level grassy areas on the hillside—one at the bottom of the hill and one halfway up the hill.
