On Wednesday evenings in July Cambridge University Botanic Garden rings to the sound of live music when we present Sounds Green – the best in open-air music. Bring a rug and a picnic; open to all ages. Food, ice creams and drinks on sale.
Organised Chaos’ approach to music is based on the joy of melody and dance – exploring musical byways which take in a whole host of traditions, from Shakespeare songs to tango, and from gypsy jazz to Elvis Costello. In fact, anything which tends to blur the outline of the music and open the boundaries of what can be called jazz. Tonight’s programme focuses on swing and jazz standards from the 30s to the present.
Music from 6.15pm to 7.30pm; garden closes at 8.00pm
Retiring collection towards the cost of concerts – please look out for stewards bearing buckets as you leave!
Please note: Due to limited capacity and to avoid disappointment all paying visitors should buy garden tickets in advance via the Botanic Garden website, on sale from June 2019. Tickets may also be available on the gate, but this cannot be guaranteed. Book tickets now. Friends of the Botanic Garden and CU students are admitted free.
