The sounds of feel-good music will fill the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens during the Second Annual Gospel & Jazz in the Gardens in honor of Black History Month. 

Visitors will have the opportunity to listen to gospel and jazz from visiting world-class artists among the monumental works of Ann Norton on the main lawn from 1 to 3 p.m. every Sunday of the month. Troy Anderson and his accompanying quintet will kick off the celebration of music with a tribute to Louis Armstrong on February 7. The Ebony Chorale will lend their stunning vocals to the series on February 14, followed by a visit from Avery Sommers on February 21. Ritah Wilburn will close out the series on February 28.

 “Whether you are a music, art, or nature lover, there is something for everyone at the Gardens,” said Margaret Horgan, managing director for the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. “And what better way to celebrate and honor Black History Month than with Jazz and Gospel favorites by award-winning musicians in an outdoor tropical oasis.”
