Uptown Jazz Series

Until further notice, all in-person concerts presented by the Mary Pappert School of Music will require face coverings for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status.

Mike Tomaro and several others play at an Uptown Jazz Series concert. The Mary Pappert School of Music is proud to present the Uptown Jazz Series, thanks, in part, to the generosity of the John R. Mattern Estate. These concerts regularly feature a variety of jazz styles from jazz faculty and visiting artists/ensembles.

Each show begins at 7:30 p.m. in the PNC Recital Hall. General admission tickets are $10 and are available at the door.

Each year, this series features some sort of common thread. In its first year, UJS consisted of a showcase of the finest jazz performers and groups in Pittsburgh. More recently, the themes have included the history of jazz, retrospective concerts on influential jazz artists, and concerts featuring the works of local jazz legends.

This season's theme is "Jazz and..." Jazz has influenced many types of media and has been influenced by the same in its relatively brief history. These concerts will explore those connections in an entertaining and educational manner.
