When guests began to arrive at Longwood Gardens in the early evening this past Saturday, the site was getting ready for closing to the general public, but not for people holding tickets for the Gardens’ Jazz Series, where theAnat Cohen Quartet was set to perform in the grand ballroom to a sold-out audience.
Upon entering one of the best flower conservatories in the world, concertgoers were warmly greeted by Anne, one of the Gardens’ superb volunteers who happened to give a special backstage tour to the four-acre conservatory to one particular pair of guests. The feature on display: “Orchid Extravaganza” (showing now thru March 29).
