As part of our Bridges to Music program, each year we present a free outdoors concert for the entire family. Featuring great performances of popular songs and classical favorites, each year this concert draws hundreds of families enjoying a picnic on the lawn and music under the summer evening sky. This concert also features a performance by the winner of our Young Musicians Competition.
The 2017 Summer Concert will be Saturday, July 8, 6:30 PM at Hillview Park in Los Altos.
