This Weekend: Concerts in the Garden




The 18th Annual Concerts in the Garden sponsored by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra continues tonight. It's a great evening out, in my view.

Tonight hear Asleep at the Wheel, my favorite Texas swing band.

Saturday night the Vocal Majority Chorus performs. VMC is an award winning, Dallas based, all-male choral group. We heard them a few years ago at the same venue and they are good. Great actually. I have not heard Sunday night's Austin Jug Band.

There are concessions, you can bring a picnic, a chair or a blanket, and even a bottle of wine. It's a great night out. It's about $20 per person, not cheap but well worth the expense.

Trivia: the Vocal Majority is the result of a split on the old Dallas Men's Chorus. The other half became the Turtle Creek Chorale.

I heard the majority 20+ years ago and they were excellent. Unfortuantely, the heat and humidity are oppressive here right now.
