Music in the Napa Valley began Saturday evening with the first of the Robert Mondavi Summer Concert Series. This is the 45th year for this fantastic musical event. Once again the Preservation Jazz Hall Band led off the series on Saturday, June 28. All the concerts take place on Saturday evenings in the grassy area behind the Robert Mondavi Winery.
