Rooted in a 20 year tradition, Brucemore’s Music in the Courtyard series will return with two special shows over four weeks. Designed by Brucemore’s Artisan in Residence, Gerard Estella, each show will offer a unique evening to relax outdoors and enjoy listening to music under the stars.

The talented and creative minds behind this Brucemore program are still putting together two shows that we promise you’ll love, but that means we aren’t quite ready to announce the show titles or talent quite yet. But, why let that stop us from putting tickets on sale?  What we can tell you is that they’ll be filled with talent with Eastern Iowa connections and keep your toes tapping all night long! Take a chance and book your tickets now or wait just a little bit longer and we promise, more information will be coming soon!
