Montalvo Ramps Up for Season

Big names in jazz and pop fill summer schedule for Villa Montalvo and Mountain Winery

With four venues (the Garden Theatre, Carriage House and Front Lawn at Villa Montalvo in Saratoga and the renovated Fox Theatre in Redwood City), the series has something for just about every audience except fans of thrash-metal ragtime.

The Montalvo box office number is 408.961.5858, and the website is www.villamontalvo.org. Tickets are also available through Ticketmaster at 408.998.8497 or 415.421.8497.
