Then, Handel in the Garden Sunday, September 21 4:30 p.m.

George Frederick Handel was one of the greatest composers of the Baroque era. The ensemble Basis (Clay Zeller, bassoon; Jude Ziliak, violin: and Kristin Olson, oboe) perform Handel's Opus 2 trios outside overlooking the beautifully restored formal garden behind the mansion.

Can you think of a better way to say farewell to summer than with an hour of classical music outdoors?
