Carriage House Theatre

Herb Alpert and Lani Hall


Herb Alpert (pictured, with Lani Hall) is just one of the bona fide legends who will be performing in our upcoming 2014-2015 Carriage House Concert season. Leon Russell, who plays on October 24, is already SOLD OUT—but tickets still remain to the shows below, so get yours today before they're gone!

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason kicks off our fall season with two shows: Wednesday, October 1, and Thursday, October 2. He leads a full band in this one-of-a-kind performance retracing the early days of his incredible career fronting the influential band Traffic.

Alpert, perhaps best known for founding the platinum-selling band Tijuana Brass, has been called one of the most famous trumpet players of all time. Together with his wife and collaborator Lani Hall, he will play two shows (Friday, November 7, and Saturday, November 8).

Later down the line, spend an evening with the one and only Judy Collins. She returns to the Carriage House stage on Sunday, March 15, 2015. Collins's iconic 50-album body of work, featuring such timeless gems as “Send in the Clowns” and “Both Sides Now,” has garnered accolades and inspired millions for over half a century.

Montalvo members give because they believe strongly in our mission of bringing the arts to the community, but did you know they also get great perks like Donor Art Trips

These outings are true "ArtVentures": special day trips to museums and private collections, as well as journeys to other cities and countries (at the highest donor levels) to meet artists and learn more about the art and culture of different regions around the world.

Upcoming opportunities include a trip to Oliver Ranch (pictured above) and the DiRossa Sculpture Garden & Hess Museum. Higher-level donors are invited to cross-country and overseas trips to experience the artists communities and meet emerging talents.

If you're a member at a qualifying level, keep an eye out for invitations to these ArtVentures and more!

Two Final Friday
Art Parties on the horizon


Irene Rodriguez

Be sure to mark your calendar for our upcoming 2014 Final Friday Art Parties!

On August 29, don't miss an evening with Cuban dancer Irene Rodriguez (pictured). Rodriguez will dance the Flamenco in a performance at an off-site location TBD.

On September 26, we will celebrate the opening of our new exhibition, Perceptual, in the Project Space Gallery, with an evening of activities.

Perceptual features new works by Lucas Artist Fellows Chris Fraser and Justin Lowman that explore the relationship between perception, light, space, and place. The two-part Art Party will incorporate a dance performance by Sheetal Gandhi and a little comedy from Kristina Wong, followed by a reception in the gallery. The event is presented in association with Asian Art Week San Francisco.

Final Friday Art Parties offer a sneak peek inside the Lucas Artists Residency Program on the last Friday of each month (except November/December). Suggested donation is $10 at each event. See you there!
