We will have a limited amount of pre-sale tickets for members available one week in advance for each concert. Those who pre-purchase each week can avoid lines and gain early access on the day of the event at 5:30 p.m. Members get a $6 discount off all price types. Garden Giving Club donors receive complimentary tickets to this series, this year. Member pre-sale is open until 12 p.m. the day of the concert each week. Members may also purchase tickets at the door at 6 p.m. ahead of the 6:30 p.m. concert. Don’t forget to grab something delicious from Trellis—check out their Music in the Garden Special Menu!
