|Chicago State University took Jazz in the Grazz to the Beverly neighborhood last week
to host "Jazz on the Hill" at the CSU President's Mansion. The event was co-hosted
by 19th Ward Alderman Matt O'Shea. More than 350 local residents, many of them CSU
alumni, came out to enjoy the perfect weather and hear the CSU student band along
international sensation Terisa Griffin perform on the lawn.
"CSU has deep roots in the Beverly community and we are very pleased to strengthen
those ties with events like Jazz on the Hill," President Watson said. "With the rousing
success of tonight's event, we plan on making this an annual affair."
