Highland Park Porch Concerts Lineup for 9/27

This is it: the final night of our four month, Summer Porch Concert series. If you enjoyed the music and the community, thank our musicians and visit HPCCPgh.org and join the HPCC! We plan to bring the concert series back next year; we have more safe, fun activities in the works for the fall and winter; and we will continue to work on and keep you informed about the issues of importance to the neighborhood – but we can’t do anything without membership support. Be a part of the organization that brings music and community to our neighborhood!
