San Mateo County Libraries: Jazz In The Library

Join us at the Foster City Library for our annual Jazz In The Library this April. In celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, each Thursday evening, starting at 6:30 pm, the library will feature talented jazz trios, who range in various jazz styles from traditional straight up jazz to experimental, Latin and original compositions. Musicians have told us that the library is an acoustically pleasing venue to play and feel a strong connection with the audience. Although we are not a nightclub, we try to enhance the audience experience by scheduling these programs after hours, when the library can be turned into a comfortable place to hear world class music. Refreshments are served before the concerts begin.
