Jazz on Sundays
Every summer, the Friends of the Golden Gate Branch Library treat Oaklanders to a series of Sunday afternoon jazz concerts featuring top-notch local talent.
Each show will feature a headlining artist at 3 pm, followed by a "History of Jazz" discussion (4:30 pm), and a youth group performance (5 pm).
All of the shows will take place at the Golden Gate Branch, except for the August 20 performance held at Doyle/Hollis Park, on 61st St between Hollis and Doyle Streets.
Admission is free and donations to the Friends are welcome. Sponsored by the City of Emeryville and Oakland Public Library.
