Flautist Bettine Clemen, whose innovative and moving concerts in more than 85 countries have been described by the New York Times as “an event that smiled out from the stage,” is bringing her harmony-infused performance to Springfield at 2 p.m. on Sunday, October 16, at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center.
Admission to the concert is $25 per person. Tickets are for sale at the Botanical Center gift shop, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., Monday-Saturday, and from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are available at the door, but will be limited to 120 ticket-holders.
The fundraiser to benefit the Friends of the Garden“ expresses the interconnectedness of all life and how music as the universal language can bring us all closer together—humans, animals, plants, trees and all life forms into harmony,” said Clemen.
“We are grateful to Bettine for offering to do this concert,” said Nancy Hopkins, the Friends of the Garden member who chairs the committee to raise funds to build a sensory garden at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park. “Her concerts are multi-sensory, just as the sensory garden will be, a tranquil, accessible place for everyone, but especially for those with physical, visual and hearing disabilities.”
