Music in the Gardens, the free weekly summer concert series at the Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, is in full swing this year!

Quickly approaching on Sunday, Aug. 30 is the Ralph Kluseman Beatles tribute sponsored by Runde Auto Group!

The performance, which will be at 6:30 p.m., is the last of this year’s Music in the Gardens series. The celebration of The Beatles includes local musicians Johnnie Walker, Mike Lieb, Denny Troy, Brian Marceau, Rick Hoffmann, and Ralph Kluseman. They will perform the music of The Beatles along with a little bit of storytelling.

“Ralph and his cohorts will be playing the favorite Beatles songs,” said Sandi Helgerson, the executive director of the arboretum. “You will be sure to have your toe tapping and can even sing along. Let the memories roll!”

The Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens has been hosting summer musical performances for more than 20 years. Sunday performances this year have included Jim Busta’s polka band, Hunter Fuerste’s American Vintage Orchestra, the Kids From Wisconsin, the Madison Brass Band, and more.

Average attendance has been 1,000 to 3,000 people this year!

“The crowds at the Music in the Gardens have been the best ever,” Helgerson said. “So many people enjoy hearing music while sitting under the trees with the breeze blowing and the amazing panorama of flower gardens.”

Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on. You can also bring a picnic or wine, and there will be food available for purchase from HyVee.

“The price is right (free because of our sponsors), the setting is great (always shaded and usually a breeze), and the music is top notch,” Helgerson said. “Also you can purchase food there if you don’t want to pack snacks.”

In the case of rain, about 100 people can fit under the pavilion. The bands will play rain or shine.

Sponsors make free admission possible, and Runde Auto Group is proud to sponsor Ralph Kluseman’s Beatles tribute at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 30!
