Each day of the festival, the campus of Menlo School bustles with activity. One of the nation’s leading college-preparatory schools, Menlo School is home to festival concerts, the Encounter series, and Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute for gifted young musicians. The campus’s ample classrooms offer an ideal environment for student rehearsals and coachings, some of which are open to the public, while Martin Family Hall and Stent Family Hall’s Spieker Ballroom provide intimate settings for music as well as for Café Conversations, master classes, and other Institute activities.
Outside the classroom, Menlo School’s gracious grounds, shade trees, and picnic areas invite visitors, Institute students, and the festival’s artist-faculty to continue sharing ideas. With its outstanding facilities, welcoming atmosphere, and passionate commitment to learning, Menlo School offers the perfect environment in which to celebrate Music@Menlo’s educational mission, which serves both festival listeners and the next generation of great chamber musicians.
Throughout the summer, Music@Menlo hosts a festival Welcome Center at Menlo School as a place for artists, students, audiences, and festival guests to connect. The Welcome Center also serves as the venue for select events, such as the Artistic Directors’ Q & A Coffee during the Chamber Music Open House. Visitors to the Welcome Center can pick up schedules and information about each day’s educational offerings and events.
