By Bonnet House Blog No Comments

In order to kick off 2020 and our 100th anniversary, Bonnet House Museum & Gardens has been hosting its annual event series, Concerts Under The Stars. This concert series has always been extremely popular, as we offer an incredibly unique opportunity to enjoy live classical music in an outdoor setting on our beautiful historic estate. These events continue through March featuring Lynn University’s String Quartet performing a broad and diverse range of repertoire that mixes contemporary music with the traditional.

Classical music has been an important part of Fort Lauderdale’s community. Evelyn and Frederic Bartlett would have surely enjoyed listening to classical music frequently when they lived in the estate. While it is not difficult to find live classical music in Fort Lauderdale, Bonnet House is offering a one-of-a-kind opportunity to enjoy an outdoor concert at our historic estate.

Lynn University’s String Quartet is a very popular local group, performing on March 12th at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens as part of our Concerts Under The Stars series. Guests can enjoy sipping craft cocktails, including old fashions, and wine on the veranda while they listen to lovely music. A wide selection of cheese will also be available to anyone who might be hungry.

On the evening of the event, our parking lot will open at 6:00pm, and the doors will open at 6:30pm. Signature cocktails, as well as wine and cheese services will then be available from 6:30pm to 7:00pm. The concert will follow from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. There are three seating options available to our guests. General seating (rows 18-32) is available for $45.00 for non-members and $40 for members. We are also offering Premium seating (rows 9-17) for $55 for nonmembers and $50 for members. VIP seating will also be available (rows 1-8) for $85 for nonmembers and $80 for members.
