from the Berkeley Hillside Club
Saturday 13 June 2020 at 8:00pm
​Admission: Free

Along with most of the rest of the world, Covid19 has had the Berkeley Hillside Club and its members hunkered down, inspecting their bunkers, and desperately missing the live music that used to grace our historic and acoustically-excellent hall. So, we've decided to do something about it. Using the remarkable technologies of the internet we're going to bring you the joy of music once again, live from the stage of the Berkeley Hillside Club.

The Concert:
​Hillside Club Concert Series fans may recognize these artists; they are supremely talented jazz virtuosos who have each played in concerts at the Club many times. They have agreed to collaborate with us on this experiment in live streaming, performing on our stage without an audience, but still wrapped in the warm ambience of our hall. They will be playing a selection of wonderfully re-imagined jazz standards. These players never disappoint!

The Artists:
    Michael Zilber - sax
    Matt Clark - piano
    Peter Barshay -bass

We hope this will be the first of many virtual concerts, until we can see each other again in person.
(We also beg your indulgence for any technical hiccups that we may encounter in this new venture.)
