Ryan Meisel Quartet – Isthmus
press release: Could there be a better way to spend a summer afternoon than listening to great music in a beautiful space? That’s what you get when Summer Sundays in the Garden, Allen Centennial Garden’s signature concert series, returns this summer with six great bands. Sit on the large lawn, close to the musicians, or feel free to stroll through the gardens and experience their natural beauty, or let your feet take you dancing. At just the right length, 75 minutes with no intermission, the concerts offer a wide variety of jazz – from swing to gypsy, Latin, bebop and modern – from June 12 to August 21.
August 21: Ryan Meisel Quartet
Modern and original jazz steeped in the history of swing, bop and avant-garde
Ryan Meisel, saxophonist | Doug Brown, guitar | Dave Dinauer, bass | Adam Katz, drums
Lawn seating is provided by the garden, but due to current Covid concerns attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs and refreshments. Free nearby parking is still available and improved signage will alert drivers to locations. Weather cancellations will be announced 2 hours prior to concert time, by 3 p.m. on concert days, on the CAG Facebook page.
Always free and open to the public, the Summer Sunday Concert Series depends on the generosity of our sponsors and attendees. Gifts of free will are gratefully accepted at events. And this year, artist sponsorships, starting at $150, will be available. Contact us for more information if you would like to sponsor one of our 2022 artists.

Company Foundation, The Evjue Foundation, Inc, charitable arm of The Capital Times, The W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation and The Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation.
