Present Music returns to the Lynden Sculpture Garden for its final concert of the season shaped in sound for the sight of the garden’s collection of more than 50 monumental sculptures in 40 acres of park, lake and woodland. A truly one-of-a-kind, moving concert that will surprise and delight the senses! Local musicians and other performers bring the Garden to life for what promises to be another sold-out finale for Present Music!
