Adkins Arboretum
(RIDGELY, MD—September 2017)

World-class entertainment is promised when the Peter Revell Band and Mina Bear perform at Adkins Arboretum’s Magic in the Meadow gala on Saturday, September 23, 2017 from 5 to 8 p.m. Set against the Arboretum’s backdrop of forests, meadows, wetlands and streams and featuring all the trimmings of a first-class affair, the event showcases the magic and enchantment of nature. Proceeds benefit the Arboretum’s education programs that promote the conservation and preservation of the Chesapeake Bay region’s native landscapes.

The Peter Revell Band comprises members of the U.S. Navy Commodores, one of the world’s premier jazz ensembles. Led by Revell on bass, the quartet includes trumpeter and vocalist Tim Stanley, guitarist Shawn Purcell and drummer and percussionist Kevin McDonald. Together and separately, these world-class musicians have performed throughout the country and around the world. The group will perform throughout the evening.

Known for her work with fire hoops and custom programmable LED hoops, Baltimore hoop dancer Mina Bear has performed her unique brand of art around the region. Far removed from old-school hula hooping, hoop dancing is an entirely different form of movement. Mina Bear will perform on the Arboretum’s wetland overlook as guests arrive at the event and again at dusk.

As twilight falls, Magic in the Meadow guests will enjoy signature cocktails on the wetland bridge, wine and local craft beer, passed hors d’oeuvres and a full mezze table, along with other delicious food and desserts prepared by Peach Blossoms Catering. While enjoying a moonrise over golden meadow grasses, guests can “raise the wand” during a live auction to bid on an array of interesting and adventurous items, including art, a dream vacation in Taos, N.M., jewelry, a “Board’s Choice” wine package and much more.

Guests are encouraged to have fun with a “fairy formal” dress code and to wear flat shoes for walking in the grass. Tram tours through the forest will also be offered.

Tickets for Magic in the Meadow are $125 per person and may be reserved at adkinsarboretum.org or by calling 410.634.2847, ext. 0.
