Inspired by the belief that the arts strengthen communities, Music at Kohl Mansion presents world-class chamber concerts at the historic Kohl Mansion and music education in public schools on the San Francisco Peninsula. Outreach programs provide access to interactive musical experiences for diverse audiences of all ages.
Music at Kohl Mansion (MAKM), the longest-running chamber-music-only presenter on the S.F. Peninsula, is deeply committed to community building through the arts, both in its highly praised mainstage concert series founded in 1983 and in education and community programs that connect people and promote human understanding. MAKM programs enhance the quality of life of Bay Area residents and visitors by reaching out to individuals of all ages, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds.
MAKM collaborates with professional musicians, arts organizations, K-12 schools, libraries, service organizations, community centers, and senior residences, providing affordable access and compelling points of entry to cultural and educational experiences for many who could not otherwise participate. These partnerships make possible economies of scale and resource sharing.
Since 1992, MAKM music education programs have touched over 120,000 K-12 students, offering partially subsidized programs for all schools and a 100% subsidy for schools in low-income communities, ensuring that all students have equal exposure and access to arts education.
MAKM responded to the pandemic by shifting its 2020-21 concert season online, and providing dedicated content for K-12 schools, including pre-recorded and real-time virtual classroom visits by artists. A full 2021-22 Season was presented featuring seven live international concerts. Consider making a donation to keep the music and our mission alive.
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.
