Music in The Gardens on Anderton

The Anderton Therapeutic Garden Society and Georgia Straight Jazz Society are offering three Sunday afternoon concerts this summer, entitled Music in the Gardens.

This is a joint effort hosted by two non-profit organizations, and it builds on their highly successful concert in August 2012.

As before, the venue will be The Gardens on Anderton, 2012 Anderton Road (behind the Anderton Nursery). Each event will be held between 1 to 5 p.m., and each will feature a theme.

On July 27, Strathcona Little Big Band will play Summer of ’42 featuring band music from WWII.

On Aug. 10, Armi Grano, jazz songstress from Vancouver and Bucerias, Mexico, plays her Satin Dreams concert; on Aug. 24, Luzna performs a concert of salsa, Cuban and Latin music, with special guests from Mexico.

The concerts are quite distinct.

Admission is $10, children under 14, free. Picnics are welcomed,  dancing is encouraged.

Proceeds from these events will jointly support both societies.
