The 9th Annual Jazz on the Hillside is made possible in part through the generous support of Arthur G. Gilkes, Esq., Dollar Bank, Highmark, UPMC and Robert Wholey’s.  Contributions and donations are tax-deductible, and proceeds from this event support the programs of SHCDP that include:

•After School Tutorial Enrichment Program (A-STEP)

•Summer Enrichment Program

•Nadia Track And Field Program

•Project Learns At Weil Elementary School

•Parent Support Groups

•Early Childhood Classrooms



TONY MOWOD introduces the band members and emcees the program.


 The Schenley Heights Community Development Program was established in 1995 to provide an alternative to crime and other socially destructive activities that too often plague inner city, low-income communities. The organization’s target population is Pittsburgh’s urban youth, most whom dwell in the Hill District community.

 Through a variety of successful programs, each year over 350 participants ages 3-18 and their families are exposed to various activities that promote academic and life success as well as activities that encourage behavioral and physical wellness.
