You know it's going to be an epic concert when Slash, one of the greatest rock 'n' roll guitarists known to mankind, is your opening act. Only Aerosmith, the best-selling rock band of all time, could top the excitement generated by seeing the legendary Guns N' Roses ax-man jam with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. Aerosmith's legendary vocalist Steven Tyler will keep the crowds cheering (and scarves fluttering) as he belts out hit after hit, from "Dream On" to "Janie's Got a Gun" to "Love in an Elevator" and many more, with Joe Perry on lead guitar. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime show as these music gods roll into Concord Pavilion on their Let Rock Rule tour. Learn More

For the Conservatory of Flowers inaugural summer concert, New York City-based jazz quartet Rose & the Nightingale premiere Spirit of the Garden on the West Coast.
Rose & the Nightingale is a powerhouse all-female quartet of virtuoso jazz improvisers and chamber musicians, featuring music that blurs the boundaries of jazz, pop, and art song. With “adventurous cello songstress” Jody Redhage, Grammy-nominated improvising violinist Sara Caswell, Juno-nominated pianist and singer Laila Biali, and improvising vocalist and trumpeter Leala Cyr, Rose & the Nightingale plays music that celebrates the sublimity of gardens as expressed through song & poetry. Rose & the Nightingale’s live performances awe and uplift audiences with the power of the quartet’s fiery rhythmic energy, sublime harmonies, and lyrical beauty.
The_ Spirit of the Garden_ blurs the boundaries of world music, folk, and jazz improvisation. The performance integrates poetry about gardens and nature as the lyrics to the songs, as inspiration for improvised interludes, and as thematic threads through the concert. As a very special component of the Conservatory of Flowers event, Rose & the Nightingale collaborate with local San Francisco poets Evan Karp and Silvi Alcivar, setting their new compositions about the Conservatory to music, to be premiered at the event, with the poets.
The event runs 2 hours, including a 15-minute intermission and a post-performance Q&A._
