Orchard Drums (2019)

  • Date: February 24, 2019
  • Time: 12:00pm - 2:30pm

Join us for a FREE outdoor party in the Bartram’s Garden Orchard, home to 136 tree species, as we gather around the fire and celebrate these last weeks of winter. Bring a drum, if you like, and join an interactive performance by Drum Like a Lady. Stay for Orchestra 2001’s moonlit performance of “Drums of Winter” by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Luther Adams. Hot chocolate, hot booze and roasting-ready snacks will be available for free while supplies last. Let’s toast to the trees as the drums boom and the sparks float up into the night sky!

5pm-7:30pm: Free drinks and fire-roasted snacks while supplies last.
5:30pm: Drum Like Lady performs and leads participatory fireside drumming!
7pm: Orchestra 2001 performs “Drums of Winter” by John Luther Adams!

Due to the chance of rain this Sunday, Orchard Drums is transforming into an indoor/outdoor event, now located in the Bartram’s Garden Upper Meadow. That way, we’ll still be able to have the best of both worlds: fire pits in the meadow and easy access to the toasty Barn in case of rain! Looking forward to seeing you there!
