Rochester, N.Y., May 16, 2019—The Garden Vibes summer concert series will return to the George Eastman Museum this summer with a condensed schedule in June. A major construction project will begin on the museum’s historic Colonnade in July, limiting access to the Terrace Garden and East Vista. The museum will host the outdoor concerts on June 12 and June 19, prior to commencement of construction.
In an effort to preserve the gardens at the National Historic Landmark estate, the museum will host the concert series on the Vista, located on the east side of the mansion next to the Terrace Garden. Concertgoers may bring a picnic or purchase food on-site from Dinosaur B-B-Que, Effortlessly Healthy, or the Eastman Museum Cafe, and BYOB. Concerts are from 6 to 8 p.m.; gates open at 5 p.m.
