Looking for the perfect way to unwind after a chilly fall day?

Highlands Music Coffee House presents ‘Trio Espresso’, a band that has been entertaining Victorians with their jazz, swing ballads, and blues for the past 12 years.

“Live music is simply a lovely thing,” says Zhinoos Armstrong, event organizer for the past 20 years. “There’s something wonderful about the community coming together to listen to one sound. Being in that environment, especially in a quaint coffee shop, brings me joy.”
