Fairchild Garden's GardenMusic Festival

Set inside the natural beauty of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, the chamber music ensemble Sixth Floor Trio takes up residence until January 19, 2014 for the second GardenMusic Festival with a full slate of diverse programs, designed and created to explode the boundaries between time and musical styles.

The Sixth Floor Trio, Teddy Abrams, Harrison Hollingsworth, and Johnny Teyssier, and the 2014 GardenMusic guest artists will perform boundary-blasting programs that range from jazz and classical to traditional folk, Broadway and Latin jazz. Four evening performances, each creatively programmed around a unique theme, complemented by an evening of Broadway and a Children’s concert, will round out this year’s Festival.

“Our aim is to pair one of Miami’s most beautiful settings with world-class musicmaking,bringing together tremendously talented and engaging musicians from around the world in a schedule of programs that cross the spectrum of time and musical styles,”said Teddy Abrams of the Sixth Floor Trio. 

The GardenMusic Festival is a winner of a 2012 Knight Arts Challenge award from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

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.

Ticketing “The Sixth Floor Trio strongly believes in making great music accessible and
engaging to the broadest of audiences,” said Teddy Abrams. “We start our ticket prices
for the evening performances at just $5 for general admission, and are free for Fairchild
members.”
