MissionInspired by the belief that the arts strengthen communities, Music at Kohl Mansion presents world-class chamber concerts in the historic Kohl Mansion and music education in public schools on the San Francisco Peninsula. Our outreach programs provide access to interactive musical experiences for diverse populations of all ages.
Music in the Mansion
Located on the Mercy High School campus in Burlingame, California, the Kohl Mansion is a jewel-like setting for fine music. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, this 1914 landmark features a gracious setting in the Elizabethan style Great Hall for intimate music on a grand scale. It is the perfect venue for the variety of musical programs consistently offered by Music at Kohl Mansion:
After every concert in every series, a reception is held within the lovely setting of the Mansion, where audience and artists meet and mingle in a single interactive community. No other musical organization offers anything like this! Please join us.
Admission-free Family Concerts are held in the Oak Room at the San Mateo Public Library, located at 55 West 3rd Avenue, San Mateo. No tickets are required. Free underground parking.
From its inception, Music at Kohl Mansion has considered music education for children a central part of its mission. Music making engages the entire brain: students with experience in the arts score highest on tests of creativity, expression and problem-solving. Establishing a vital and engaging relationship with music gives students a gift that will continue to enrich and delight them for life.
Music at Kohl Mansion has supplemented school programs in a variety of ways:
Over 50,000 children have benefited in the past 10 years. We intend to fulfill this mission for many more years to come.
