Chris Botti in the Garden Theatre
Support concerts in the Garden Theatre
On Thursday, August 22 at 7:30pm, we are presenting An Evening with Chris Botti in our stunning outdoor Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre. Limited tickets remain to see this award-winning jazz sensation, so if you haven't purchased yours yet, be sure to get them today! And we have just added additional spaces at our previously sold out pre-concert Dining on the Terrace, so reserve a seat to make your night complete.
Thanks to the generous support of donors like you, we are able to bring incredible performers like Chris Botti to Montalvo. The Garden Theatre stage is a fantastic resource that can be used for concerts, dance, theatre, art, and more -- but only with your help. 
By giving to Montalvo, you can ensure that our community has a chance to experience events and performances from the intimate to the spectacular, making use of each one of the beautiful venues, gardens, and grounds we are blessed with. 

San Jose Jazz Summer Fest
San Jose Jazz Summer Fest
We know many fans of Montalvo love live music, and this weekend is a great opportunity to experience one of the South Bay's best musical events with our friends at San Jose Jazz!
Three decades in the making, Summer Fest celebrates its 30th year August 9-11 with a record 14 stages of international stars and rising artists serving up jazz, blues, Latin, R&B, Salsa, New Orleans, and more. They’ve added the Latin alternative Sonido Clash Stage and the Jazz Beyond Stage featuring some of jazz and soul’s most progressive artists. It’s more than just music -- it’s the perfect summer weekend with great food, drink, and friends.

Summer Art Classes
Time to get Experimental
Release your creative side this summer with two evening Experimental Drawing Techniques classes. In a relaxed and encouraging setting, receive guided instruction from professional artist Dana Harel while enjoying light refreshments and wine. Because these classes are great for beginners and experts alike, there's no reason to miss out -- come and get experimental!
In India Ink, Charcoal, & Graphite (Wednesday, August 21 from 6-8pm), you'll push the traditional drawing mediums of india ink, charcoal, and graphite into new directions by brushing, splattering, dripping, and spraying india ink, and using charcoal and graphite in unconventional ways.
In Pattern On Fabric (Wednesday, September 11 from 6-8pm), you'll make iterations of patterns on paper, creating completely original prints on fabric squares and limited edition cloth that can be incorporated into other textile art pieces.
