The new year is officially upon us, and that means Bonnet House will be hosting a new set of concert series to kick off 2019! Beginning in January, Bonnet House is proud to present “Concerts Under The Stars” and “Veranda Sessions.” Both concert series will be sure to bring joy and positivity to all as we start 2019.

The concerts will start on Thursday, January 17th with the first concert in our popular “Concerts Under The Stars” series on our beautiful veranda. Don’t miss out on the finest musicians in South Florida as they showcase their unique talents under the starry skies of South Florida. Initially conceived as a community outreach program, this concert series has blossomed into one of Bonnet House’s most anticipated, successful, and treasured programs over the last 23 years.

Our series will begin with a dazzling performance by the University of Miami Frost Opera Theater from 6:30-8:00pm. The season will continue through the winter and spring with presentations on February 21st by the Michael Masci Trio, followed by the Lynn University String Quartet on March 14th, and culminates with a performance by the Dillard Jazz Ensemble on April 4th. Individual tickets for the concerts start at $40 per performance for members and $45 for non-members. Wine and cheese will also be included in the price of admission.

On the evening of Thursday, February 7th, Bonnet house will begin hosting “The Veranda Sessions,” a raw, creative musical experience on the Bonnet House Veranda. In this first session, guests will enjoy the unique musical stylings of SOSOS . Displaying a diverse balance of talent and brewing up catchy tunes, SOSOS captivates audiences with their smart melodies and lush vocal harmonies. Basing most of their music around acoustic root instruments, SOSOS strays from the usual and generates their own brand of energy that our guests are sure to enjoy.

The Veranda Sessions continue on March 28th with the Daniel Bennett Group, New York’s avant garde jazz trio. World-renowned Saxophonist Daniel Bennett has been hailed as one of the most original and unpredictable musical voices of his generation, and has performed his
award-winning compositions across the globe. But it’s not just jazz that the Daniel Bennett Group has perfected. By attending Bonnet House’s Veranda Sessions, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of modern jazz, fused with elements of surf rock and avant-pop. Both sessions take place from 6:30-9:30pm and include complimentary wine and beer. Tickets are $30 per concert.

Bonnet House is incredibly proud to host such extraordinarily talented groups and individuals. We encourage any and all interested persons to attend these concert series, and experience what has been called “quite possibly the best entertainment deal in town.” To see our calendar of events and to purchase tickets to our concert series, click here .
