Gorgeous setting. Plenty of space. Bring a chair and pack a lunch, or buy from the food vendors. Music is mesmerizing. Check out schedule online. $10 per person definitely worth it! Come early to get a good seat and parking. Definitely need to do this!

What a lovely venue. The Arboretum is cultivated and has beautiful plantings throughout. They have a regular schedule of musicians in the summer, all terrific quality. It's a beautiful place for an outing with or without musicians
