Concert tickets make great gifts!

give the gift of music

The gift of music


This time of year, we're all looking for a unique present to give to our friends and family members. Here's a suggestion: get them tickets to a concert at one of the Bay Area's most intimate music venues!

A concert experience is fun, enriching, and can create a memory that lasts a lifetime; it's the perfect way to change things up this holiday season. We are offering such a wide variety of performances in our Carriage House Theatre in 2015, you're sure to find something for that special person on your list. And if they'd prefer to see a classical music concert in the historic Villa—we've got those, too!

Check out some of our upcoming Carriage House shows below. Purchase tickets online or call the Box Office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.

Looking for an amazing gift that also gives back? The Giorgio Armani store in the Westfield Valley Fair shopping mall can help you out. 

Just mention Montalvo when you make your purchase now through Saturday, November 22, and Armani will donate 10% of the price to us. It's that easy; not only will you or your loved one look good in those amazing new clothes, but you'll feel good about helping the arts thrive in your community!

'Tis the Season
to Smile :)

Another easy way to give back while making purchases you already make this holiday is by using Amazon Smile.

Just do your regular shopping by clicking on the image below (or copying and pasting this link: ) and a portion of your purchase price will be donated to Montalvo. You're already shopping at Amazon, and all items are priced exactly the same, so why not give it a try?


See new additions to our exhibition Dec 14:
Perceptual (Part 2)


Perceptual: Chris Fraser and Justin Lowman

Join us on Sunday, December 14, from 4:30-6:30pm for the premier of Chris Fraser and Justin Lowman's exciting new outdoor art works on Montalvo's grounds in an evening we're calling Perceptual (Part 2).

Guests will gather in front of the Project Space Gallery to begin the evening, where t
he artists will present their latest works on a walking tour as the sun goes down. After the tour, there will be an artist talk and reception in the historic Villa, where Fraser and Lowman will discuss their relationship to the Light and Space art movement that emerged in Southern California in the 1960s, as well as recent research on sensory perception.

Both artists are currently featured in our Project Space Gallery exhibition, Perceptual: Chris Fraser and Justin Lowman

RSVP on Facebook below, and invite your friends! $10 suggested donation at the gallery entrance.
