Sundays on the River Concert featuring Kevin Bales Jazz Quartet
August 8 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Presented by Northside Hospital
Special Thanks to Lee J. Howard Entertainment
What better way to wrap up the weekend than an evening under the stars listening to live music with friends!
The Sundays on the River Concert Series returns with 3 live onsite shows for 2021. For this year’s theme of “Jazz for nurturing our heart and soul,” we are bringing magnificent and beloved world-class talent from our own Atlanta backyard.
Join GRAMMY-nominated jazz pianist Kevin Bales, vocalist Keri Johnsrud, and their quartet as they present Beyond the Neighborhood: the Music of Fred Rogers. Rogers composed all the music for his beloved show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and over 50 years later, the music still stands strong. The quartet’s interpretations of Rogers’ tunes have received rave reviews and played to enthusiastic audiences throughout the US.
What the critics are saying about Beyond the Neighborhood:
“It pays tribute to Fred Rogers’ music and spirit in a fashion that glows with respect and carries over some of the powerful messages of the show itself. It’s delicate and moving and one of the highlights of the year’s music.” – C. Michael Bailey of All About Jazz
“…Johnsrud spun long and uninterrupted lines, seemingly suspending the passage of time. Pianist Bales led an aptly lush instrumental accompaniment, his solo an expertly conceived, meticulously detailed transformation of the piece.” – Howard Reich, The Chicago Tribune
“After seeing “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” at a local theater, my friend commented that she wanted to check out the Mister Rogers Songbook. This album might be the hippest way to explore that treasure trove. …Johnsrud and Bales have not betrayed these songs; indeed, they have enriched them.” – Thomas Cunniffe, Jazz History Online: Crossroads
Live music fills the stage on the second Sunday of the month July through September. Whether it’s a girls’ night out, a date night, or a “you” night, nature will provide the perfect backdrop for the evening. Bring a picnic and blanket and enjoy this night of fun at CNC’s outdoor listening room.
