Festively lit historic garden paths and live music on a midsummer’s eve make for a unique Finger Lakes experience as Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park kicks off its popular Moonlight Stroll Concert Series on Friday, July 7. The 2-hour concerts will take place every Friday night in July and August from 8:00 – 10:00 PM. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets as well as family, friends or that special someone for an evening out under the stars and strolls through beautiful garden as music floats through the air.
Besides the musical entertainment, guests will have a rare opportunity to partake of the beauty of Sonnenberg’s gardens at night - for this is the one time each year that the gardens are lit and showcased at night. Evening garden strolls are a rare treat for the gardens take on a completely different demeanor – shadows grow long, hues deepen, and the fragrance of roses and other blooms become more pronounced as the evening air cools.
Sonnenberg will be bringing a variety of talented musical performers to its grounds for this concert series. With a variety of musical genres, there’s sure to be something for everyone at Sonnenberg this summer!
Sonnenberg’s own Finger Lakes Wine Center will offer wine by the glass for sale each evening. Light refreshments including soda, water, pizza, popcorn, and cookies will also be available from the Friends of Sonnenberg. This year’s performance venue is the veranda of the Mansion and guests will be able to spread out blankets and set up seats on the lawn.
The gates will open at 7:30 PM and all concerts will be held rain or shine.
