Mansions and Music Concerts 2012-2013 Calendar
It has been suggested that the vibrations of a string set the universe in motion.
While we are not qualified to weigh in on the ongoing scientific debate, we are intrigued by the notion that the very fabric of the universe is governed by vibrating strings and posit our own string theory: strings set in motion in various lengths, numbers and configurations create a universe of musical possibilities. Please join us for our nineteenth season of Mansions & Music.

Liongate Manor was designed and built in 1948 by renowned architect Paul Williams. Over the past 24 years, Gretchen and Graham Lewis have lovingly transformed the property from a 5,000-square-foot California ranch house into a 12,500-square-foot English manor house. Musicians will perform under large oak trees and guests will have the opportunity to mingle in the gardens of lilies, ranunculi, hydrangeas, primroses, and daisies, surrounded by citrus, apple, plum, and avocado trees.
Tickets are $75 per person ($40 is tax deductible)
Seating is limited and reservations are required. For tickets or questions, please call Melissa Froehlich, (626)683-3355 or email@example.com
