A fundraiser featuring

with snacks, drinks, and live acoustic music at each location.

Sunday, May 24, 2009 from 1-5pm (Memorial Day weekend)

Location: 5 gardens in Santa Cruz, near Pleasure Point, and La Selva Beach. Maps & Directions provided to ticket holders. Entry garden located at 236 Sheldon Avenue.

The 11th annual Music in the Gardens Tour takes place this year on Sunday, May 24, 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. Tickets are $30.

Gardens & Music: This year's tour features 1 garden on the upper Santa Cruz Westside, 2 Seabright neighborhood locations within walking distance from each other, 1 garden near Pleasure Point, and 1 garden with ocean view in La Selva Beach. Fruits and vegetables grow in Garden 1 using only organic gardening techniques. Visitors will enjoy the sounds of Indonesian flute (suling) played by Burhan Sukarna accompanied by zither. Garden 2 is inhabited by exotic flowers and rare plant species, along with a greenhouse and a magnificent pond. Jazz A will be offering music of the 1930s and 40s. A mixture of elements, Garden 3 features roses, organic herbs and vegetables, a pond with water lilies and a deck for entertaining. Italian mandolin music will fill the air with the mandolin duo Seabright Serenaders (Irene Herrmann & Paul Rangell). Garden 4 was created over the course of 30 years by its landscape designer and artist owner, including plants from travels and cuttings from personal friends, providing a very personal landscape. Originally from Burkina Faso, Salif Kone, a master musician and story teller by family tradition, will perform offer music with balafon (African zylophone) and voice. Finally, Garden 5 is set amidst rolling hills dotted with oaks and pines and has a breathtaking view of the ocean. The sounds of folk music artist Neal Hellman's dulcimer will complement this garden's Californian splendor.
