Come early for a dedication of the Poster Trees at 5pm, vignettes from Chesapeake Shakespeare in a wonderful excerpt from A Midsummer Night's Dream at 6pm, Misako Ballet at 6:30pm, followed by the Orchestra at 7pm. Jazz trio Preverbal featuring Columbia native Zach Brown will finish the evening with a futuristic set not to be missed
