Join us for a three-concert festival! Spend a starlit evening on the grounds of Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, with three different programs of world-class orchestral performances each night. Pack a picnic and enjoy live music performed against the backdrop of the illuminated John F. Wolfe Palm House. Bring the whole family and join us one hour before each concert for music and garden inspired children’s activities on the Wolfe Terrace (behind the stage). Performances are FREE and all ages are welcome!
