Free Jazz Concerts throughout the summer!

Contemporary jazz pianist/keyboardist and composer, Peter Horvath has been perfecting his craft since the age of 6 when he began taking classical piano lessons. Son of famous Hungarian singer Zsuzsa Matrai, Peter had a natural and intense desire for music. At age 17, he won the National Jazz Combo Competition in Gyor, Hungary, and two years later he moved to Austria to attend the Vienna Conservatory of Music. Establishing himself rather quickly in the Austrian jazz scene, he began playing and touring with jazz notables, such as Leo Wright, etc. Horvath's diverse background is manifested in his performances and compositions, with both complexity and clarity . . . from straight ahead to funk to contemporary jazz. Performing with a passion, and heightened by his fiery personality, Horvath uses every ounce of energy to convey his finely crafted compositions.

The Jazz on Main series continues this year, with Main Street hosting outdoor jazz concerts every Monday evening from June 20th through August 15th featuring the Bay Area's very best jazz artists. The jazz is on from 6 - 8 pm, and everyone can enjoy the music, eat at one of the many great restaurants along Main Street, and if the mood strikes – DANCE! The all-star lineup will be sure to make for many jazzed-up Monday evenings on Main Street in Downtown Redwood City’s Historic District.
