Thank You To Our Fine Musicians!

            Many thanks to all the talented performers who are bringing the sounds of the season to our Garden of Lights.
Our sparkling lights seem even more festive when paired with their seasonal music. 

Music begins around 6 PM.


Throughout this event, local musicians offer a wide variety of holiday sounds. 

Pianist Barbara Gomulka, who added her special touch to our Fall Festival, returned for Garden of Lights. 

Another repeat act is the Sunrise Jazz Quintet, a Lincoln Park Academy group who enlivened our recent 30th Anniversary Party. 

St. Andrews Parish Choir was a stellar addition to Garden of Lights in 2015.  This year they return along with their Boys and Girls Choir and the St. Andrews Academy Choir.

            Vero Beach High School sent their Sinfonia, Fiddlers Club, and Chorus during our second weekend, to the delight of all.  Even Santa got into the act.

            We can’t wait for the upcoming performances of the Renaissance Charter School of St. Lucie, the Mariners Barbershop Chorus, and the Marianettes Flute Chorus! 

All bring unique joy.  All are deeply appreciated!
