Event Reminder

Tonight's final concert of the New York Botanical Garden's summer series will be held on the breathtaking Enid A. Haupt Conservatory lawn. We've been to both other concerts in this series (classical guitarist Mattias Jacobsson with violinist Kristin Lee, followed by choral group Quarternity), and this jazz concert with the David Grossman Ensemble (featuring legendary drummer Jimmy Cobb and rising star Dan Nimmer) promises to be the best of the bunch. You can't beat sipping some vino and listening to jazz surrounded by the world renowned flora and fauna of the New York Botanical Garden. An added bonus is that most exhibits, including the Henry Moore sculptures, have extended viewing times until 8 p.m.
Admission details are as follows:
Adults: $20
Seniors/Students: $18
Children (2–12 years): $7
Children under 2: Free

Walk across Kazimiroff Boulevard to the Garden's Mosholu Gate entrance.
