Humboldt Botanical Garden will continues its Summer Music Series on Sunday with a performance by the group Wind Energy.

The woodwind quintet is led by oboist Michael Kibbe and features Jill Petricca (flute and piccolo), Paul Cummings (clarinet), Aaron Lopez (bassoon) and Anwyn Halliday (horn). They will play classical, modern and jazz works.

The garden opens at 10 a.m., and the music begins at 1 p.m. These concerts are held the first and third Sunday through August. Bring a picnic lunch and lounge on the lawn and take in the sounds of local bands before touring the garden or the Butterfly House.

This activity is free to HBG members, with general admission fees for non-members. Children under 6 are free. Non-service dogs are not allowed in garden during special events.
