Strathmore Introduces Intimate Concerts at Outdoor Patio Stage

Strathmore recently announced the May 30th opening of a covered, open-air space located in the Music Center’s Trawick Terrace. The 120-seat patio is all set to be the place to gather comfortably this summer for intimate live music concerts, including performances from jazz icon Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra Septet.

“Wynton and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra typically sell out two nights in the Concert Hall—that’s nearly 4,000 seats,” Strathmore’s Artistic Director Joi Brown explained, “At the Patio Stage, these world-class musicians will be playing for just over 100 patrons at once, it’s a very special experience.”

In addition to Marsalis, the Patio Stage will offer a varied lineup of music. It also takes advantage of Strathmore’s lush campus by providing views of the park-like setting, while the Music Center’s façade serves as the stunning backdrop for a breezy summer season of concerts. And don’t worry about the weather — the space is covered by a roof to protect from the elements but open on the sides to allow fresh air to circulate.

To maintain seating distance and keep an appropriate low capacity, two concerts will be offered for most performances, each 60–70 minutes long and without intermission. Tickets, which will be sold in pods with tables seating one to four people, will go on sale in waves to ensure county guidelines for capacity are met.

The Patio Stage will be in full swing through September! Check out the lineup here.
