SSGC Member Jim D. performs at Brookside during extended Garden of Lights
>>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Popular Solo Harpist, Jim Dronenburg
Performs January, 8-10th at the Garden of Lights
Even though the Garden of Lights show and train exhibit at Brookside Gardens are definite crowd pleasers, it's often the musical performances inside the Visitors Center by local musicians who volunteer their time and talents that garner some of the largest ovations. One such musician is Jim Dronenburg who has performed at the Garden of Lights for the last eight years.
"When Jim heard that we were extending the Garden of Lights by one more weekend from Friday, January 8 through the 10th and didn't have any musical performances planned, he didn't want visitors to be disappointed by not being able to hear any music so he generously offered to step in and play his Celtic harp on the last three nights of the Show," said Barbara Starke who oversees the scheduling of the musicians, and volunteers for the Information Desk at Brookside Gardens. "It was an offer we couldn't refuse," added Starke.
Jim Dronenburg has been pleasing crowds with his Celtic harp throughout the mid-Atlantic region for over 15 years. His repertoire of music is eclectic and extensive and can be catered to most audiences. To learn more information about Jim's music, please visit his website at www.jamesdronenburg.com
