Event Description

Musicians from the Five Seasons Chamber Orchestra will offer a variety of musical pieces,  including performances of harp, flute, guitar, violin, cello and bass selections.  Dancers will perform a country dance from the English Renaissance period and teach willing attendees the dance.  Readings and commentary from the writings of William Shakespeare will be offered by a member of the Wednesday Shakespeare Club.  Delicious refreshments will be provided by members of the Shakespeare Club.  This event is to visitors to experience the beauty of this historically significant garden, begun in 1927.  After the devastation of the 2008 flood and the 2020 Derecho several community groups and individuals have begun the process of revitalizing a unique Cedar Rapids asset.  Members of the NorthWest Neighbors Neighborhood Association, Friends of the Shakespeare Garden, Wednesday Shakespeare Club and Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation will be on hand to visit and answer questions.  Beautiful posters showing the vision for future revitalization will be on display.  This event is free and open to the public.  Those attending should bring lawn chairs.
