Hollister House Garden invites garden and music enthusiasts to celebrate the official beginning of summer with a classical outdoor music concert presented by The New Baroque Soloists. ‘Festive Music for the Summer Solstice’ also known as ‘Music in the Garden’ will be held on the grand lawn of the garden on Saturday, June 19th at 4pm.
The acclaimed Artistic Director of the New Baroque Soloists Doug Myers brings along an outstanding ensemble who will feature intimate chamber works for trumpet, Hunting horn, oboe, English horn, cello and keyboard.
