Home of Hillside Concerts

Do you have a burning desire to hear chamber music in a setting for which the composers intended it? Do you enjoy sharing some wine, hors d'oeuvres, and conversation with the performers afterwards? Are you a musician looking for a performance venue where you can almost touch your audience? Hillside Concerts are intimate gatherings of musicians and music lovers, coming together to enjoy the universal language. Now in our 10th year, we've presented some of the Bay Area's best classical, early music, and jazz musicians, in over 65 concerts. 

Don't forget to RSVP and come a little early to ensure a seat. We can only seat about 35 people.

Go to first light, Euclid Ave. Turn left. Go one block to Buena Vista Road and turn right. Go one block, to stop sign at LeRoy. Turn left onto LeRoy. Travel two blocks until you see a wacky intersection with four streets coming together. Look for Shasta Road and turn right onto it. Go 1/4 mile and look for 2692 Shasta and park on the street. You may have to walk a bit, so give yourself a few extra minutes to get parked and climb up the 82 steps to the house. Carpool if you can, to make parking easier.
