The West Side Community Garden is a New York-based organization with a mission to involve and engage the surrounding community beyond providing a serene place to enjoy nature. Each summer the Garden provides the community with a summer arts series including concerts by professional musicians, Shakespeare performances for children and adults, open movie nights and a two-day arts and crafts festival. Music in a Garden is a program to provide neighbors of the garden with the opportunity to hear top-level musicians in a beautiful, welcoming setting. The Garden seeks to introduce a diverse range of music to audiences of all ages with the aim to foster an appreciation for different forms of music through various music concerts. Past concerts have included a Brazilian quartet, Renaissance lutenist, South American quintet, Jazz trio, Classical string trio and a Classical flute and harp duet.
