Reeves-Reed Arboretum welcomes
MALEKU FOLKLORE COSTA RICA, Wednesday, July 23
as Sounds of A Summer Night Concert Series Continues
at Reeves-Reed Arboretum

Summit, NJ Music and dancing will be the bill of fare as the summer concerts-in-the-garden series, Sounds of A Summer Night, continues at Reeves-Reed Arboretum, Wednesday evening, July 23.

Maleku Folklore Costa Rica is a Summit-based organization formally established to promote and preserve the heritage of Costa Rica through traditional dances and "concherias." Each joyous presentation of the Maleku Folklore Costa Rica pays homage to and celebrates the indigenous cultures of the Costa Rican natives through song, dance, and colorful costumes.

All Sounds of A Summer Night concerts are on Wednesday evenings, and begin with the Arboretum grounds opening up at 6 pm for concertgoers to picnic. The performances are from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. You are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. The cost is FREE to Reeves-Reed Arboretum members (thanks to underwriting support from Investors Bank). Otherwise, there is a $10 donation at the door for non-members; students are $5 with a valid ID.

Sounds of A Summer Night is sponsored, in part, thanks to support from Nick & Tracy McKee, the Grand Summit Hotel, and the Summit Area Public Foundation. For more information, please check our website, www.reeves-reedarboretum.org or call the office at 908-273-8787.
