Como Conservatory's Music Under Glass series reveals winter lineup

Lucy Michelle will be Under Glass

Lucy Michelle will be Under Glass

Ever imagine a scenario like 1996 enviro-comedy Bio-Dome, except with Minnesota musicians in place of Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin? You're in luck, weirdo! Como Park Zoo & Conservatory has the solution with its Music Under Glass concert series.

Set to kick off December 27 with the chamber-pop stylings of the Starfolk, the free series will bring local music talent to the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory's 2-acre tropical wonderland, a welcome reprieve from the frozen deathscape we call home.

The tunes — ranging from folk to blues to bluegrass to soukous — will begin at 4:30 p.m. every Sunday afternoon through February 28, save for January 31 and February 14. Beer, soda, and snacks will be available for purchase. 

Here is the complete 2015-'16 Music Under Glass lineup:

  • Dec. 27: The Starfolk
  • Jan. 3: The Last Revel
  • Jan. 10: Siama Matuzungidi's Afrobilly with Jacqueline Ultan
  • Jan. 17: Lucy Michelle
  • Jan. 24: Patty and The Buttons
  • Feb. 7: Katy Vernon Trio
  • Feb. 21: Erik Brandt & The Urban Hillbilly Quartet
