|Instrument Petting Zoo|
As the festival winds down this weekend, it started January 6, the following is planned:
Friday, Jan. 17, 7 pm
Broadway in the Garden with Broadway star Morgan James (Motown the Musical, Godspell) who transports you through New York's great musical eras with her extraordinary vocal prowess – merging

Music Up Close: A Children’s Concert An intimate, fun-filled hour of musical education, engagement and enjoyment for children of all ages. This presentation is free for Fairchild members and is included with regular garden admission for non-members.
Sunday, Jan. 19, 7 pm
A Jazzy Night. This program celebrates the intersection of the
worlds of Jazz and Classical music. Bartók and Ravel are paired with Jazz standards, contemporary Jazz, and Latin Jazz for a high-energy and inspiring concert that demonstrates the full creative power of the 2014 GardenMusic artists.
Pre-Concert Conversation with Artists Audience members can enjoy the performances either in the Concert Tent or on the lawn, and are invited before the 7pm performances to
pre-concert programs at 6pm.
In addition to the main performances in the Concert Tent, GardenMusic will fill the
Fairchild garden space with music-making throughout the festival. Visitors to Fairchild in
January will experience short concerts throughout each day of GardenMusic, Random
Acts of Culture, open rehearsals, and daily educational activities with the GardenMusic
artists for every student that visits the Garden.
Tickets are available on line: www.gardenmusicfestival.com/tickets/
GardenMusic was created in 2012 by Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden’s Board of
Trustees Vice President Jennifer Buttrick to bring music to the Garden for the community
to enjoy amongst the backdrop of Fairchild on a Florida winter’s night.
