Gigs: Fresh Faces – Nix, Mayor and Mann
October 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Central Bank and Central Trust present Gigs in the Garden, a free concert series at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 20 and Sundays in October 2020 at the Peace through People Pavilion located within the beautiful Kay Cummins Finnie Dogwood Garden in the Springfield Botanical Gardens, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield, Mo.
Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and social distance to enjoy a variety of local performance groups in an extraordinary setting. In the case of inclement weather, Friends of the Garden will livestream the concerts on social media.
The October 11 concert features three sets by different performers: Ivy Nix, Aaron Mayer and Avery Mann. Nix is a singer/songwriter/producer who uses her voice and music to speak her mind. Mayer’s songs are about real people brought to life with soulful vocals over acoustic guitar.
Gigs in the Garden is organized by Ric Mayer, maintainer of the Kickapoo Edge Prairie, and Linda Chorice, former Springfield Conservation Nature Center Manager. The series is managed by Friends of the Garden and Springfield Sister Cities Association in cooperation with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.
Funding for the concert series is made possible through Central Bank and Central Trust’s sponsorship of the Dogwood Garden. Though the concerts are free to attend, donations are accepted to benefit and improve the Springfield Botanical Gardens.
The Peace through People Pavilion was constructed in late 2016 to encourage more cultural performances and community events in the Springfield Botanical Gardens. The Pavilion furthers the Friends of the Garden mission to bring people, nature, and gardens together as well as the Springfield Sister Cities Association mission of Peace through People.
