Second Summer Concert

Post Date:07/17/2014 3:50 PM
Summer Concert SeriesSponsored by the Town's Cultural Arts Committee, please consider yourself invited to the second of the Portola Valley Summer Concert Series on Thursday, July 24 from 6 to 8 pm at Town Center (765 Portola Road). On the musical menu are the swinging big band sounds of the 20-piece Legacy Band.

Band History: Many of the members of this band grew up in Portola Valley and attended Menlo-Atherton High School. The Legacy Band is a living tribute to Frank Moura, retired jazz band director from M-A High School, who repeatedly had the only U.S. high school big band invited to play at the Montreux Jazz Festival and other prestigious gigs in Europe. To earn money to make the multi-week trip to Europe, band members played many concerts on the peninsula, including in Portola Valley.

Concert Tips: Please feel free to put your blankets/chairs out early to reserve a preferred spot on the performance lawn. You can bring your own picnic dinner and/or enjoy the food truck vendors (Roli Roti with pulled park and El Porteno with home-made empanadas). Please bring jackets, sunglasses, blankets as the wind and/or fog may cool things down as the sun sinks.
