Community Through the Arts

Make a Gift

At Montalvo, we believe that the arts foster creative connection between people in a fundamental and necessary way. 

It is a belief that inspires every single one of our programs: from the artistic offerings by our internationally renowned Sally & Don Lucas Artists Residency, to our arts integration initiatives launched by our Education Department; from our Carriage House Concert Series, to the restorative calm of our beautiful grounds and outdoor installations…

We are bringing people together through the arts. 

This holiday season, won’t you please consider a gift to Montalvo to help support all of our vibrant programs? A gift will make a meaningful difference in our efforts.  

Wishing you a holiday season full of wonder and deLIGHT!

The Yellowjackets Swarm February 21


Join us on Thursday, February 21 at 7:30pm as fusion jazz superstars the Yellowjackets take the stage in the Carriage House Theatre.

Two-time Grammy winners, this jazz fusion band was hailed by JazzTimes as a “perfectly combustible electric-acoustic outfit whose smart, often challenging and unpredictable compositions draw from fusion, post-bop, and contemporary jazz.” Throughout their storied 35-year history, the Yellowjackets have recorded 22 albums, received 17 Grammy nominations, and performed countless sold-out tours, enjoying worldwide critical acclaim and commercial success. 

Do not miss them live at Montalvo! And don't forget: concert tickets make great holiday gifts!
