Garden After Dark presents Broadway star Avery Sommers accompanied by the best jazz musicians in South Florida. For this special concert, Sommers will share her incredible stories and her love for Broadway classics and the great American songbook. The Swing All Stars, led by revered bassist and musical director Paul Shewchuk, features a rotating cast of the top musicians in the region performing a high-energy set of American classics.
