Don’t Miss the Redwood Grove Summer Concert Series Published: June 6, 2018 By: Andy Sohn Diana Gameros Alejandro Y Maria Laura The University of California Botanical Garden at Berkeley announced its annual Redwood Grove Summer Concert Series. This year, as part of the Stand for the Redwoods celebration of 100 years of redwood forest protection, the Save the Redwoods League is partnering in the presentation of the summer concert series. The concerts are held every Thursday and special Tuesdays, June through August, in the Botanical Garden’s outdoor amphitheater under towering redwoods. These family- and picnic-friendly shows are held in the golden hours between 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. (We strongly encourage you to ride the Hill Shuttle for free with your campus ID!) As always, the line-up has something for everyone and includes a wide range of performers, from Grammy-nominated pianist Jovino Santos Neto to the inspiring Young Musicians Choral Orchestra Big Band, venerable Americana songwriter Chris Smither to Peruvian indie rock couple Alejandro Y Maria Laura. We’re bringing back local favorites like Vetiver and introducing you to new bands like The Low Anthem. Opening night is Thursday, June 7, with beautiful African folk music by Yacouba Sissoko and Babá Ken Okulolo & the Nigerian Brothers. In the past few years, all the shows have been completely sold out, so please order early if you plan to come! To purchase tickets and find more information, please visit the Botanical Garden’s website. Ticket sales benefit conservation, education, and research at the UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley, one of the nation’s most diverse plant collections and a Bay Area community treasure.
