Tor House became a magnet for the musical, literary and artistic aristocracy of the 1920s through the 1940s. After exploring the garden, tower and cottage the tour will conclude with an intimate concert in the cottage (on Una’s 1905 beautifully restored Steinway) celebrating the Jefferses and their famous visitors. Stories of Robin and Una, Ansel Adams, Samuel Barber, George Gershwin and others will be interwoven with live performances of poetry, music and songs (Robert Armstead, bass-baritone) from this magical period in Carmel history.
