What could be better than a soft summer evening outdoors experiencing live music. We think not much and so every summer the Hilliard Arts Council hosts a Sunday evening concert series featuring an eclectic mix of performers and music styles. The concerts are free to the public and held in front of the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center beginning at 7pm (we move inside the building if the weather’s bad). Our concerts are in the Old Hilliard DORA zone, so feel free to bring a beverage from any of the participating taverns and restaurants.
In a conversation over a cup of coffee in 2019, Mark Fox conceived of a new, community Big Band. He knew a lot of fine musicians who had “day jobs,” but also had a passion for playing jazz. The word soon got and very quickly the Arch City Big Band was formed. Inspired by the Columbus historical nick name of Arch City, the Arch City Big Band is made up entirely of volunteer musicians united in their love of the big band sound and working together musically to inspire our community to enjoy, pursue and preserve Big Band Jazz.
This year the Summer Concert Series is made possible in part due to the generous support of Coffee Connections, Raising Cain’s, Rotary Club of Hilliard, Blue Oak Patio and Landscape and Westwood Collective
