Why We Like This Place

The design inspiration for the Music Center at Strathmore was clearly nature itself: Walls of glass let in abundant natural light, while touches of birch and maple wood add warm accents. The building’s roofline and curving façade echo the gentle undulations of the surrounding hills, and the dramatic 65-foot-tall windows in the lobby frame views of 11 acres of greenery. In addition to the interior event spaces, two tented terraces are perfect for outdoor celebrations.
