TUCSON, ARIZONA – Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson will host a very special art and music event, under the glowing light of a full moon, on March 17-19, from 6pm to 8pm.

‘Music of Dreams” features a shakuhachi, or Japanese bamboo flute, concert in a nightly scenery that glorifies the gardens. The evocative notes of the flute will accompany your moon gazing and leisurely walk along the paths illuminated by lanterns and candlelight.

An exceptional Photo Exhibit by Kate Breakey, from her series "Moon Song", will be on display during those three nights. The artistry of the photographer, who has skillfully caught different phases of the moon with her camera, will seem to pay due tribute to the real thing shining in all its beauty up in the night sky.

General Admission: $25, Children 3-15: $15. Advanced ticket reservation is required. This is a limited admission event.
