Jazz Under The Stars

Join us Thursday, September 13 at 7:30 pm for the second installment of our Concerts in the Gardens series featuring the Pete Zimmer Quintet.

This highly touted quintet has been called "The best kept secret in straight ahead jazz circa 2006" by All Music Guide and drummer Pete Zimmer has been called one of the most talented composers to ever sit behind a drum kit. They have taken New York by storm and are ready to entertain you at their Wichita debut. Make plans to join us for a fine example of modern mainstream jazz in the colorful backdrop of the Gardens in autumn.

Tickets are $12 ($10 for Botanica members) and are available for purchase in advance by calling 316-264-0448.
