Jazz in the Garden at Boxerwood (Friday, May 22)
Jazz guitarist Vince Lewis and singer Nadine Chase take the stage this Friday May 22 at Boxerwood from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. The Charlottesville jazz duo will perform swing and pop standards from the big-band era. Their performance is the third in a series of ten free “Music in the Garden” concerts scheduled for the second and fourth Fridays of the month through mid-September.
Music in the Garden features artists from Central Virginia, including many from the Rockbridge community. Country singer Sarah McDonald kicked off the series in April, followed by The Fading Point, a student a capella group from SVU. Upcoming June concerts include bluegrass duo Shester & Datz on the 12th and the blues trio Honest Labor on the 26th. A full schedule of summer concerts is available on the Boxerwood website: www.boxerwood.org.
Music-goers should bring their own picnics, lawn chairs, and blankets. Children are very welcome. The concerts are free; pass-the-hat proceeds go to the musicians, who all perform pro bono at Boxerwood.
In the event of rain, concerts will be canceled. For more information and “iffy” weather updates, visit Boxerwood on Facebook or the Web (www.boxerwood.org) or call 463-2697.
