Courtyard Concerts Return To The Conrad In April

The Conrad’s very popular free courtyard concerts, launched last year, are returning for three months this spring! This year’s series is expanded to three months, with Traffic Jams kicking off on Friday, April 7, 2023, offering live jazz during rush hour.

Rather than being stuck in traffic after work on Fridays, plan to meet up with friends at The Conrad and enjoy some jazz together instead—or come solo and make some new friends. Or, bring your lunch and enjoy some first-rate classical music performances to break up the workday.

The Conrad Courtyard Concerts highlights

• April celebrates National Jazz Month with flutist, Lori Bell, kicking off the courtyard concert series with an all-women jazz quartet featuring pianist Melonie Grinnell, bassist Evona Wascinski, and percussionist
Monette Marino.

• In May, the concerts begin with a volunteer recruitment event for highschoolers and university students. La Jolla Music Society is opening up opportunities for students with a passion for music, dance, and volunteering
to join as ushers at upcoming performances this summer and next season.

• On Wednesday, June 21, La Jolla Music Society will partner with Monarch Cottage and the Salk Institute to present a lecture on “Engaging the Aging Brain through Music.” Registration will be required for the
lecture, which will take place at The Conrad in The JAI. A concert will follow in the courtyard by the piano trio, Aviara Trio.

“With the opening of The Conrad in 2019, La Jolla Music Society gained an amazing new resource that can help us build and strengthen our connection to the community,” says Allison Boles, Director of Learning and Engagement. “With this new Wu Tsai QRT.yrd concert series, launched last year, we want all people to feel welcome and to feel a sense of belonging at The Conrad. I hope the free concerts featuring talented local musicians will serve as a point of entry for many individuals and help us build excitement and engagement at The Conrad.”
