Symphony Garden Tour – September 13

TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE GATE beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Wellfield Botanic Gardens is thrilled to welcome the Elkhart County Symphony back to the garden for a special outdoor performance on Sunday, September 13, 2020 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The event is called “Symphony Garden Tour,” and it’s actually several concerts in one! The Symphony Garden Tour will be a set of performances by small ensembles scattered throughout Wellfield.

The audience is invited to tour the Gardens and enjoy both the beauty of nature and the beauty of live music performance. Seven music ensembles will perform over the course of two hours in three separate areas along the garden pathway. The small groups will include Zephyr Woodwind Quintet, Generations Jazz Trio, and brass and string ensembles.

The event’s planning includes consideration of pandemic health safety for musicians, staff, and our audience. Face masks are required in Wellfield buildings and restrooms, and as well as outdoors when social distancing is not possible.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Performance attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs or a blanket. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets securely online in advance (and save a few bucks, too!) or tickets may be purchased in-person at Wellfield’s Visitors Cottage during regular business hours. The Visitors Cottage is located at 1011 North Main Street in Elkhart.
