The local jazz ensemble, Morchestra, will headline the latest of Berkeley’s “music in the parks” series, which brings a variety of musical styles to different parks.
Bring your families, friends, and loved ones and prepare to be transported by the harmonies and melodies of Morchestra during a Saturday afternoon of live jazz at John Hinkel Park.
This Berkeley-based 17-piece jazz orchestra, led by the talented arranger and guitarist Tony Corman, will fill the park with their vibrant and original arrangements.
The performance takes place at John Hinkel Park, where you can soak in the music from a tiered amphitheater amidst an oak grove.
