Discover Strathmore: The Magic of Strathmore
Presented by Strathmore
Monday, February 15, 2010 at 11:00 AM
Music Center at Strathmore

Back to Calendar

Join us for Strathmore's free open-house festival!

Discover the Magic of Strathmore as you experience musical and magical acts throughout the Strathmore campus. Headlining the festival are The Spencers in their production "Theatre of Illusion," called "a new take on magic [that] borrows the kind of lights, music and drama of a Broadway production meshed with a rock concert" (Monterey Herald).

Paul Carr's Jazz Academy Orchestra will perform a magic themed concert. Pair that with performances, classes, interactive workshops and demonstrations, arts and crafts and more in the Music Center and Mansion, and you and your family will enjoy a mysterious magical day - all for free!

FREE, no tickets required.
PLEASE NOTE: Park in the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro garage or at the meters along Tuckerman Lane. For patrons safety on site, there is no parking in the Mansion lot during the festival. Due to the snow in the Metro garage and the along the street, parking will be limited. Patrons are encouraged to take Metro.

Sorry, no strollers or pets are allowed on site. We will have limited stroller parking for those who take Metro, patrons who drive should leave strollers in the car.
