Originally founded as a sanctuary for flowers, birds, and their admirers, Pinecrest Gardens has flourished into a family-friendly retreat that entertains visitors with artistic events in a scenic setting. On January 28, the soulful Brazilian rhythms and traditional acoustic guitar of Rose Max and Ramatis—whose vocalist was named Best Lounge Act by the Miami New Times—escort listeners on an aural tour of Rio de Janeiro. February sees the Harvey Nevins Orchestra whisk crowds back to a time filled with hepcats and rampant suspender snapping with big-band arrangements of George Gershwin and Cole Porter works. Nurturing his father’s musical legacy, Tito Puente Jr. and his Latin Jazz Ensemble summon spring to make its toe-tapping entrance with lively mambo beats in March.
Debbie Orta closes out the concert series on April 28 by belting and purring through numbers in the style of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, fueled by a talent the Sun-Sentinel sums up as “a sweet voice and sharp timing and phrasing.” While relaxing in the 500-seat outdoor Banyan Bowl, audiences enjoy pristine acoustics, cool evening breezes, and complimentary views of the stars.
Founded as a sanctuary for flowers, birds, and their admirers, Pinecrest Gardens has flourished into a family-friendly retreat that entertains visitors with horticultural exhibits and artistic events in a scenic setting. Spanning 4.3 acres of forested wetland, the gardens harbor more than 1,000 rare and exotic plants, including a 100-year-old coco plum tree, orchids, and a banyan tree that spreads across three-fourths of an acre. Waterways full of fish snake through these plants, their inhabitants impatiently pursing their lips at visitors for handfuls of food.
Pinecrest Gardens offers other entertainment opportunities for youngsters, who can splash around in the water playground, spot wildlife at Swan Lake, or play with potbellied pigs at the petting zoo. In addition, the 500-seat outdoor Banyan Bowl offers concertgoers pristine acoustics and cool evening breezes along with complimentary views of the stars.
