Evenings at the Conservatory are a delight. Come hear local musician Paul Pfau perform and experience the wonder of the garden!

Paul Pfau (rhymes with "wow") is an award-winning singer-songwriter from the rural hills of western Maryland. His sound is often likened to a fusion between John Mayer and Michael Buble because of his crooning voice and tasteful guitar playing. In 2011 Paul was nominated Best New Artist by the Washington Area Music Association, opened for The Lumineers, and jammed with the Beach Boys. In 2012 he began recording his debut full-length album, Happy To Be. In 2013 Happy To Be won a WAMMIE for Debut Album of the Year. Currently, Paul is touring the country performing at some of the nation's most prestigious clubs, colleges, and music festivals.
