Spend a delightful summer’s eve under a canopy of stars as Symphony Silicon Valley, Maestro George Cleve, and Broadway star Lisa Vroman perform on the great lawn at Montalvo Arts Center.
The waltzes of Strauss, Sondheim, and friends set the backdrop reflecting Cleve’s Viennese heritage. The beloved strains of “Die Fledermaus” and “The Blue Danube” will mingle with Sondheim and Gershwin favorites to reflect the air of a delightful summer outing. Picnic and dine on the lawn as Lisa Vroman leads us through a medley of Broadway tunes written with a Viennese dance tempo in mind. This special Strauss to Sondheim concert celebrates the renewal of Montalvo’s annual summer lawn concerts. Bring the family and enjoy one of the South Bay’s most beautiful places!
