The Center for Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton, at 555 Middlefield Road in Atherton, was completed in 2009. It is a state-of-the-art concert hall that is acoustically ideal for chamber music. With an architectural design inspired by the neighboring oak tree grove and an intimate interior, the 492-seat hall is located in close proximity to downtown Menlo Park on the campus of Menlo-Atherton High School.
Stent Family Hall, located at 50 Valparaiso Avenue in Atherton, on the Menlo School campus, is, in the words of one festival artist, “one of the world’s most exquisite chamber music spaces.” The hall’s elegant Spieker Ballroom, with seating for 148 guests, provides a listening experience in the intimate setting for which chamber music was intended.
*Update for summer 2016: Menlo School will be undertaking a significant construction project on the center of the campus that will impact Stent Family Hall.
While preliminary plans had indicated that Menlo School would be able to continue to occupy parts of Stent Family Hall and Music@Menlo would still be able to present performances in the ballroom during evenings and weekends, Menlo School has now been informed by the Town of Atherton that no occupancy of the building will be allowed this summer while major reconstruction of the foundation is underway.
Therefore, for the summer of 2016, all Music@Menlo performances scheduled for Stent Family Hall, and the Prelude Performances that precede them, will be relocated to the Center for Performing Arts at Menlo-Atherton.
We will be informing our patrons of these changes as they order their tickets, and will be contacting those people who have already placed their summer ticket orders. Of course, the staff is available to answer any questions you might have.
We apologize for the inconvenience this construction may present for this coming summer, but we all look forward to the enhanced facilities on campus once the project is completed.
Martin Family Hall, located at 50 Valparaiso Avenue in Atherton, is Menlo School’s versatile 220-seat multimedia facility. It offers up-close enjoyment from every seat for festival events such as Encounters and select Prelude Performances, master classes, and Café Conversations.
Koshland Theatre, Schultz Cultural Arts Hall, is located at the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto, at 3921 Fabian Way. This intimate venue seats 344 and is used during Music@Menlo’s Winter Series concerts.
