Sonoma County Philharmonic
“During the past year we have tried to find ways to deliver our music but Covid-19, an intense fire season and frequent power shutoffs made it difficult. So for now, please enjoy our 2017 concert recording of Dvorak’s “In Nature’s Realm,” paired with artwork by local artist Wendy Brayton depicting daily life around Sonoma County.
Sculpture Garden at Museum of Sonoma County
Open to visitors Thursday-Sunday, 10am-1pm. Free admission.
Established in 2011, the museum’s garden was designed by landscape architect Frederic Warnecke. The garden’s elements were chosen to evoke the landscape of Sonoma County: its rolling hills, grass, and trees. Plants, such as the olive and ornamental plum trees, reference the region’s agricultural heritage amid a dozen featured artworks.
