Fwd: 8th Annual Jazz on the Hillside

8th Annual Jazz on the Hillside
SHCDP hosts annual Jazz Concert in Hill District

The office of Councilman R. Daniel Lavelle is proud to announce that the 8th annual Jazz on the Hillside fundraising concert will take place on the lawn of the Schenley Heights Community Development Program multi-purpose center at 3171 Ewart Drive. The celebration will take place on Friday, June 22, 2012 from 5pm to 9pm. This event will honor and highlight Pittsburgh's renowned and rich jazz legacy. In the chance of rain, the concert will be held at Milliones University Prep located at 3117 Centre Avenue. There is a suggested donation of $35 for food and entertainment.

The Jazz on the Hillside celebrates the mission of the SHCDP and Pittsburgh's Musical legacy with an evening of entertainment that will feature music from artists such as Jeff Montgomery, Howie Alexander, Tubby Daniels, Southern Comfort, and several other local jazz artists. Last but not least, the Pittsburgh Jazz Society founder Tony Mowod will be acting as the event's emcee.

The SHCDP is a non-profit community organization that was established in 1995 to provide an alternative to crime and other socially destructive activities that often plague inner-city, low-income communities. There they have a suite of programs catered to Pittsburgh's urban youth that promote academic and life success, as well as behavioral and physical wellness.

Please join us for this 8th annual Jazz on the Hillside fundraising concert. The proceeds from Jazz on the Hillside will go towards the support of SHCDP programs that include the After School Tutorial Enrichment Program, the Summer Enrichment Program, the NADIA Track and Field Program, Project LEARNS at Weil Elementary School, parent support groups, and early childhood classrooms. Again, we would love to see you at the event. For tickets and any other information, please contact the SHCDP at (412) 621-3341.
