Free Sunday Jazz

For all you local Austinites, the Hartman Foundation “Concerts in the Park” series is having a free Jazz Style ‘Big Band’ concert this Sunday night at 7:30pm. The show is put on at the Hartman Concert Park in front of the Long Center City Terrace. I’m pretty excited about it. Hopefully we’ll be able to go. There are three more free shows coming up in the couple of Sundays:

August 10 – Brass Ensemble (Pops)
August 17 – Woodwinds/Brass Ensemble (Pops)
August 24 – Season Finale (Mixed; Variety)

They are all free and listeners are encouraged to bring a blanket and a picnic dinner to listen to the hour long concert and enjoy the views of downtown Austin. Sadly, there is no alcohol allowed at this event which destroys my idea of some nice cold prosecco, bread and cheese for a picnic dinner. We’ll just have to make do with some yummy Sweet Leaf Tea and sandwiches. 🙂

    I asked Jeremy about this and we decided that we would wait and see how we feel on Sunday. Although in all reality I doubt we’ll end up going. It’s hard to justify driving all the way down south on a Sunday night when I know I have to get up early the next morning and drive down there again! I wish it was on Friday night instead!

    We were there too! You so should have given us a call – we had this huge fruit and cheese plate that we couldn’t finish!
