Our "listening room" concerts are held in our beautiful backyard on an open air patio with flowers behind the performer(s). Thus the name "Garden Party Concerts." We serve everyone a free dinner about an hour prior to the show, ask that all attendees please bring their own chairs for seating on the lawn, hold the performance for about 90 minutes (including a brief intermission) and wrap everything up by sunset. The back of our house faces west to a wooded area, so the sun drops below the upper tree line before our event times and the backyard is shaded.
It's important to note that our events are NOT public and therefore admission to our shows is by invitation only. If you'd like to attend you must reserve your space(s) by contacting us first, by email, and receiving a reply confirmation that you're on our reservation list. In that reply you'll be given our address and full details regarding parking, the need to bring your own lawn chairs and bug spray, the dinner menu for the show you are attending, etc. CAPACITY IS LIMITED TO 50 PEOPLE AT EACH EVENT, SO ONCE THE RESERVATION "WINDOW" OPENS FOR A SHOW YOU'D LIKE TO ATTEND (about a month before the performance date), THE SOONER YOU RESERVE YOUR SPACE THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES THAT THE RESERVATION LIST WILL NOT ALREADY BE FULL!
