Purple flowers at VanDusen Botanical Garden

VanDusen presents: Spring Strings

Spring Strings is sold out.

May 27 at either noon or 4:30pm on the Great Lawn

Join us for an afternoon cello concert on the Great Lawn on Saturday, May 27. Low Strung , a classically-trained cello group from Yale University, will be performing two sessions of modern hits from artists like Coldplay, the Eagles, Queen, and even Avril Lavigne, arranged on cellos. 

Spend the day roaming 55 acres of VanDusen Botanical Garden before an afternoon of contemporary music on the lawn. From the golden laburnum trees to violet wisteria, immerse yourself in a whimsical garden that will make you feel like you’re on the set of Bridgerton. Costumes and Regency attire are encouraged.
