Event Information: For 10 years now Santa Cruz Baroque Festival has been presenting its annual Music in the Gardens fundraiser, with the upcoming tour taking place on Sunday, May 25, from 1 to 5 pm. As in previous years, we feature 5 of the area's finest private gardens, with snacks, drinks, and wine at each location. 5 different music groups complement the natural splendor and culinary selections with musical offerings spanning a range of folk and ethnic styles. This event is a fundraiser and proceeds benefit the continued operation of the Baroque Festival's annual concert season.
Gardens: This year's tour features 2 gardens on Spring Street, a beautiful residential neighborhood near the base of the UCSC campus, 1 garden on the Westside close to the ocean, 1 garden close to downtown Santa Cruz, and 1 Aptos garden. Music: Greek and Italian mandolin music by the Falcos, flamenco guitar by Eric Jarmie, African music with Salif Kone, Eastern-European music and dance with the David Feldthouse ensemble, and the sounds of Elizabeth Mier's harp comprise our musical assortment for the event.
