2nd Sundays from July to September

Presented by Northside Hospital

What better way to wrap up the weekend than an evening under the stars listening to live music! On the 2nd Sunday from July through September live music fills the stage at CNC’s outdoor listening room.

Bring a picnic dinner, a blanket, and enjoy a date night, or a night out with friends, as nature provides the perfect backdrop for the evening outside.

Members and visitors will be required to purchase tickets in advance. Total capacity has been reduced and limited seats are available.

Joe Alterman Jazz Trio

The final Sundays on the River concert is sold out! Please plan to join us for the 2022 season!

Atlanta native Joe Alterman expresses a certain upbeat naivete, with a broad smile and bright eyes that make you feel welcome. One would not guess that this is a man hailed by greats; Ramsey Lewis describes his piano playing as ‘a joy to behold’, Les McCann states ‘As a man and musician he is already a giant’. Journalist Nat Hentoff championed three of Alterman’s albums, as well as his writing (Joe wrote liner notes to three Wynton Marsalis/JALC albums), calling one of Joe’s columns “one of the very best pieces on the essence of jazz, the spirit of jazz, that I’ve ever read, and I’m not exaggerating.”

Joe is well-known for his joyous performances that keep audiences swinging and his latest album “The Upside of Down” was released on August 13. 

What the critics are saying about Joe Alterman:
“Pianist Joe Alterman pulls off one of the rarer feats in modern jazz: he swings — hard.” – Downbeat Magazine
“Joe Alterman is doing his part to keep alive the art of the swinging trio. He is a wonderful pianist whose playing brings smiles and good feelings to his listeners – as he has caused me to experience when I heard his enjoyable album.” – Monty Alexander
