Lovers of nature and jazz aficionados alike were treated to the sounds of The Superchief Trio at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center on Sunday, March 16, as part of the park’s Spring Concert Series.
Softened by the rich greenery, the magnificent glass structure served as a tropical setting for the vibrant blues/jazz ensemble. With cool temperatures outside and the sun beaming in through the glasshouse, my husband and I basked in the warmth.
The musicians performed one classic tune after another, bringing the audience to their feet. They swung and moved to the beat of the captivating rhythms.
An afternoon of expression with nature and art combined was a time of meditation for my husband, and for me, a connection that was good for the soul. What a feeling!
The concert series concludes this Sunday, April 6, with the Atwater-Donnelly Trio with Cathy Clasper-Torch. Visit the Botanical Center Conservancy site, bccrwp.org to learn more about upcoming events.
