This summer, when you’re exhausted and staggering home from work along Seventh Avenue in Park Slope on a Friday night, don’t forget to look around and see where all that music’s coming from.

The Brooklyn Conservatory of Music and the Park Slope Chamber of Commerce will present free garden concerts every Friday from July 12 to Aug. 30, from 5 pm to 7 pm, at the conservatory garden, 58 Seventh Ave. at Lincoln Place. The series kicks off on July 12 with Greg Erickson’s Tri-Bone-Al performing classical brass music. The rest of the series features jazz.

New this year, says Jennifer Newell, executive director of the conservatory, is a bonus concert on Aug. 9 by the Jambalaya Brass Band who’ll be performing their special brand of New Orleans jazz in front of Carvel and Mojo Cafe on Third Street at Seventh Avenue. Performing simultaneously at the conservatory will be bassist Eric Lemon and his quartet.

Newell says the Jambalaya Band "is the biggest and one of the favorites every year. The bands that perform are usually faculty member-based. Jambalaya’s leader is saxophonist Rick Frank - head of the preschool program."

To start your weekend off right, don’t miss these free community concerts.

For a complete schedule of bands, call (718) 622-3300.
